I was looking for something to do with some really ripe bananas and did want a bread. This seemed like a nice change. After reading reviews I decided to make some changes. First, I dissolved the sugar in the liquids prior to pouring over bananas. Second, I skipped adding the butter prior to baking. Then, after baking, I further reduced the remaining liquid (which was way too thin) to make more of a syrup consistency. All in all it was pretty good. My husband and I both thought toasting the coconut then sprinkling on top would be a good idea. I ate it alone and found tasty but a littlesweet. My husband put ice cream on top-which I found better tasting.

We made this in my jr hi cooking class. At first the kids weren't too receptive to it because of how it looked but once one tasted it, they all went for it. Nothing was left!

I tried this recipe and found it to be just okay. I thought that the oj/sugar would form more of a syrup but it just stayed liquid. I did like the fact that it's introducing fruit as the dessert but no one was wow-ed in my family. Sorry, I hate to not rate things well.
