This recipe is identical to the one handed down in my family. Just like the submitter, I have been making this recipe since I was a child. My Mom always liked to serve it with cream cheese spread on it, but I prefer it without or even warmed up with a little butter on it. Most people like this recipe, but I notice that among those that don't, a common theme of "too dry" and "flavorless" come up. My guess is that you are not using ripe enough bananas. This recipe should be made with over-ripe bananas that have fully black skins. Over-ripe bananas are very flavorful, sweet, and wet. This is my "go to" recipe when I have a few bananas that have gotten too ripe to eat as hand fruit. I freeze peeled over-ripe bananas in a zipper bag until I have accumulated 3 and then I make this recipe. If I don't have enough mash to make up a cup, I scale the recipe down. I never substitute less ripe bananas, because the sugar and moisture content won't be right.
