This is a quick and easy dessert topping that goes great with ice cream or pound cake. It also is quite tasty with pears or berries!

So yummy! I used a little more butter bourbon instead of brandy (that's what I had) and no nuts. So yummy! Next time I will try with nuts! Read More

A simple and quick dessert I served over ice-cream it was a good way to use two over-ripe bananas. I think you can use many choices of alcohol. I used butterscotch schnapps and omitted the molasses as I thought that would be sweet enough. No pecans so substituted walnuts. Read More

This is crazy good and the molasses doesn't overwhelm (as it often can). So easy so quick and so tasty! I'd recommend you start with a fairly firm banana because it cooks quickly and could turn to mush if overcooked. I served over half of a vertically-cut pear which had very nice presentation. This one's a keeper! Read More

I used rum instead of brandy. I thought it was nice. My son did not care for it. I think my stove must be hotter than most other stoves. I heated the pan over medium heat and it still burned the butter the instant I put it in. Read More

Oh my...can you say YUM? Good way to use up extra bananas but this is SO good I'd even buy them FOR this! I used the brandy but I think it would work just as well with other liquors such as rum maybe even Kahlua! The molasses does not overpower either which is nice. I'm having some right now over vanilla ice cream. Thanks chervilla for an easy and excellent recipe that I'm sure to make again! Read More
