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.

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!
