Very easy to make used a dairy free butter substitute and it worked just fine. Made just a small amount to test the recipe.. This will be perfect on French toast for a special brunch I'm planning. I did add a touch of vanilla before baking. Excellent flavor although quite sweet (but that will work for the french toast) Read More

This turned out SO great! I didn't use a whole stick of butter like others suggested and no brandy but everyone kept asking if I had put some kind of liqueur because of the way the bananas carmelized. My husband doesn't even like banana desserts and said I would have to make this again! Read More

I would give this a 3 but my hubby would give a 5 so compromised with 4. If you are looking for something that is appealing to look at and to eat I wouldn't recommend this. When serving this I recommend serving immediatly. The longer it sits the more unappealing it looks! As far as taste it was a little too sweet for my tastes but as I said my husband couldn't get enough! (Had 3 servings!) I only had it over icecream and it was still really sweet couldn't imagine eating it alone. Read More

Oh I wish I had some 'nilla ice cream when I made this! It's super easy and super good and if you don't make it and put it over vanilla ice cream you're missing out on a big treat and I don't care for bananas! Read More
