Here's what NOT to do: DON'T use ripe bananas (you want them as firm as possible). DON'T cook them too long or stir too much --- just warm them (they get soft). DON'T wait any time whatsoever to serve this (it gets mushy and breaks down). The recipe says to "serve immediately" and that is correct! Good luck!
This is wonderful! Just know that your bananas will not stay firm and nicely shaped. They get a bit mushy and soften a lot as they cook. But you will be so pleased with this recipe. It got rave reviews at my Build Your Own Ice Cream Sundae Party! It was the favorite over my homemade hot fudge sauce and the homemade butterscoch sauce. I also made it again for topping our favorite Belgian Waffles... Divine! Thanks!
I used it for pancake topping and it was wonderful. Since there were only two of us I halved everything (except the vanilla - we love vanilla). The only changes I will make next time will be to use the whole 1/4 cup of walnuts and I will probably take other reviewers' suggestions and add maybe 1/2 cup crushed pineapple (my husband loves pineapple too - others might want to start with 1/4 cup if you're halving the recipe like I did). You do have to be very gentle with your banana slices or you will end up with mush -- but it will still be tasty mush!
We liked this and it's super easy to make. I had everything in my kitchen already. Adding pineapple would boost the tropical flavor and sweetness in my opinion and make it a completely 5 star recipe. The trick with cooking these bananas is to be as gentle as possible. Place them in the butter and wait don't stir them around. After several minutes (5 or so) then use a spatula to gently flip them. Minimal movement will help them hold their shape if that's what you're hoping for. My daughter did LOVE it! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
