nice, i prefer it warm so i just reheat it as required. - 16 May 2010


I have just made up this recipe and have eaten it with pancakes. Heaven! What a fabulous way to use bananas! There's some left over to have with ice cream - plain vanilla would be best, I think, but plain chocolate would be great, too. Thanks so much for this recipe which, I am sure, I'll be making again and again. It's a bit like the banana bit of a banoffee pie XXXXX - 16 Feb 2010


Absolutely adore this recipe! One further tip: Add a bit of cinnamon to your pancakes if you're going to have this with them, it makes for a very subtle but wonderful addition! - 30 Oct 2012
