As good as the Lady says, I dont use the salt and sometimes replace the nutmeg with 60ml of dark rum at stage 2, but with or without the rum this recipe is excellent.

These are a great dessert if you need something fast and delicious. The only recommendation I have is to maybe half (or even quarter) the recipe (unless you have a LOT of company over) because it doesn't keep well AT ALL.

This is so quick and easy to make, but it tastes delicious! The only thing I would do differently next time is to use brown sugar. Other than that, this is excellent. I served this with a little fat-free Cool Whip. Thanks!

This was very yummy! Next time I think I'll cut up the bananas so they get a bit softer. I'd also use brown sugar instead of white. My husband thinks it would taste better with a bit of rum extract. It was still very good, though.

What an absolutely wonderful recipe this was. I will make it again and again. Thanks so much for posting. One note though....Make only what you need because the banana's dont keep till the next day.

Wow - was looking for something to do with soft bananas and found this recipe - will make it again and again!

These were really really good, but I thought they were lacking a little something. Chopped nuts? Drizzled chocolate? I added rum to the sauce, and that was an excellent plan!

I didn't think this would taste good, but we had so many bananas that i decided to give it a try! and i'm os glad i did! It was delicious!! Make sure you eat it in one night b/c the bananas go brown! thanks!
