    Awesome!!!....and so simple. Be sure to only "warm" the bananas in the sauce, otherwise bananas wil be too mushy.  -  29 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Incredible! I made this for friends and they raved about it! One friend said this was the best dessert she has had in her life! I used rum extract in place of rum. I looked up the substitution on the web and found out 1 Tbsp. Rum = 1 tsp. rum extract plus 2 tsp. water. I used these measurements and it tasted perfect!  -  01 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made this twice now, first time used rum flavoring and 2nd time used Meyer's Dark Rum. I thought it was a little too liquid using 3-1/2 T of rum, but my family loved it just as it was. It served our family of 3 generously. The flavor is rich and addictive.  -  06 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
