    loved this. I used brown sugar (only about a fourth of a cup) and it turned out great.  -  31 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make this every so often, not as a dessert but as a pancake/waffle/ice cream topping. I used brown sugar and a little maple flavoring instead of maple sugar and add until it's the consistancy I'm looking for. I usually will toss the bananas in a tbsp. of lemon juice before cooking.  -  16 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I gave it a four, because, while it was still pretty good, I had to make a huge adjustment: the Sugar. 1 cup was entirely too much. I didn't have maple sugar, so I used brown sugar (not even 1/4 cup). I also added a few drops of lemon to the brown sugar mixture as it cooked. I had mine with vanilla ice cream, and it was great!  -  05 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
