“Warm bananas covered in a rich sauce with a hint of nutmeg. This quick and easy dessert is a delightful treat any time of year! Ready to eat in just 20 minutes. This dish is best served the same day it is prepared. I typically use soft bananas and serve with ice cream.”

As good as the Lady says, I dont use the salt and sometimes replace the nutmeg with 60ml of dark rum at stage 2, but with or without the rum this recipe is excellent.

This is so quick and easy to make, but it tastes delicious! The only thing I would do differently next time is to use brown sugar. Other than that, this is excellent. I served this with a little fat-free Cool Whip. Thanks!



These are a great dessert if you need something fast and delicious. The only recommendation I have is to maybe half (or even quarter) the recipe (unless you have a LOT of company over) because it doesn't keep well AT ALL.
