Fantastic! Hubby and I both loved it and I'll be making it again! I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the coconut and it's a must to serve with a little vanilla ice cream. It really smoothes out the flavor just irresistable. I uploaded a photo of mine. It actually got cooked 1/2 hour or so longer before we got to dig in and was just fine just remember to stir a little so that it doesn't get stuck on the edges or dried out. Definitely a keeper!

This is not good and I'll tell you why. The banana's in Bananas Foster are suppose to stay somewhat firm and not turn to mush. They shouldn't turn brown. The caramel sauce is really good though so that alone gets the two stars. Read More

This recipe was super simple and delicious! The sauce is just so good. I did this all in a saute pan over the stove and it was done in a matter of minutes...I only used a dash of rum extract too and it tasted like I remember my parents making when I was little except that they put a flame to theirs!

This was so easy and so delicious. One of our favorite restaurants serves this and my husband and I both love it. This was as good as the restaurant version. Next time I will use a little less Rum extract but otherwise a wonderful recipe that I know I will be using a lot in the future! Read More

Regarding the bananas turning to mush: get slightly green bananas....don't get already ripe fruit, it definitely makes a difference. Just common sense. Actually, I think it would be better to make the sauce, then add the bananas at the last 15 minutes or so... Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I have used it over and over for everything from our family dinner to large parties with multiple bached prepared. I have never had the banans turn out mushy as described by one reviewer. I have always made it with rum instead of the extract and a few times have added a dash more rum just before serving to light at the table. Read More

The sauce was awesome... how can it not be with butter and brown sugar... but the bananas became hard and rubbery. Perhaps I needed to use very ripe bananas. I was thinking the fast and hot cooking of bananas foster in the restaurants maybe makes it soft and sweet. Maybe the slow cooking didn't get the bananas to that sweet spot. I would try it again though. Read More

I thought this recipe was great! I love slow cooker recipes because you just throw it in and leave it alone to do all of the work. This was easy and delicious...my husband and I ate it all up with Vanilla Ice Cream! I ate it cold the next day with vanilla ice cream and i actually liked that better because it didn't melt all of the ice cream. Good one to make again! Read More
