Very good with the following changes. I used brown sugar and cinamon to saute the bananas, saved a little shaved chocolate for garnish on whipped cream. Sprinkled some toasted slivered almonds on top. A definte hit.

I made a modified version of this (ice cream instead of whipped cream, chocolate syrup instead of the from-scratch mix here), but found the bananas in simple syrup to be very bland. I think it would be better with brown sugar instead of white, and it needed some cinnamon, too.

This recipe is great, however following the recipe made the banana's too mushed. I will try cooking the rum with the butter and sugar first, until the alcohol cooks off, then put the bananas in for about 2-3 minutes. I would agree about using 1/2 cup for whipped cream. I added 1/2 tbsp sugar to the whipped cream just for taste. THANKS THIS WAS GREAT!!!!

A friend of mine called it "orgasmic!"

Great recipe! I served this for my family recently and everyone raved. (And they're not a disingenuous bunch.) One quibble: 1/4 cup of whipping cream isn't adequate. I used 1/2 cup and it was just enough.

This was SO GOOD!!!! I didn't have heavy cream so I used light cream for the chocolate mixure and used semi-sweet chocolate chips. I then topped it off with canned whipped cream. The recipe was a total hit with my husband, I will be making it often! THANKS FOR SHARING IT!
