My family loved it and so easy to make - 19 Apr 2013


This is delicious and the best way of ensuring those overripe bananas get used up. - 03 Mar 2014


I am the world's worst cook, but I had some ripe bananas and thought I'd give this a go. Recipes that are easy to everyone else, usually turn out disastrously for me, but not this one. What can I say, other than this is amazing! It was absolutely delicious. - 18 Jun 2016
