3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) pitted dried plums, halved
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons brandy
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 bananas, cut into 2/3-inch pieces
2 cups coconut or vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted (optional)


In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add dried plums, sugar, brandy and cinnamon; simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until dried plums are soft and compote is thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in bananas; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until bananas are heated through.
