  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  5. Gradually add the flour, alternating with the cream.

  6. Blend mixture until just combined.

  8. Make the syrup: melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan.

  9. Add rum, banana liqueur, and sugar.

  10. Slowly bring to a rolling boil; decrease heat to medium and cook until it reduces somewhat, 10-15 minutes; do not overcook.
