I cut the brown sugar by 30%, the butter by 50%, and left out the flour, making it a bit healthier. Definitely wait to put the bananas into the pan. They do get mushy. I added walnuts (though macadamia nuts would have been good too) and a little bit of coconut shavings for texture and flavor. I also mixed half regular rum and half coconut rum as to offset the actual coconut shavings and not overpower the dish. I got the flambe to work, though it didn't last very long. It depends on the strength of the alcohol you're using. I continued heating it after the flambe to cook off the rest of the liquid and it worked out well. It was very good served over brown rice!
