About this recipe: This Cuban dessert has a nice tropical flavour and is so easy to make. Bananas, brown sugar, butter, pecans and raisins are baked, then drizzled with brandy at the very end. Terrific with vanilla ice cream.

It was delicious. Made with just bits I had in. - 18 Aug 2015


This was ok, would maybe be nice with some ice cream or a light sponge, but wasn't really to my taste. Good way to use up extra bananas though! - 29 Feb 2012
