Just made this! I cut the recipe in half since it was just for hubby and me and I only had 1 very ripe banana! Just delicious and so perfect to satisfy a sweet tooth craving!

This is such a yummy recipe - for adults. I have a slight revision for kids...instead of the rum use real maple syrup, and top with pecans and real whipped cream infused with vanilla bourbon. This is definately one way I've gotten my children to eat the bananas that they might otherwise consider a bit too ripe. Enjoy!

This is a delightful dessert. If entertaining, if you have a small portable gas stove (usually the kind used for camping, etc.) you can prepare this dessert tableside for your guests. Go ahead and flambe the rum, it adds to the excitement of the evening and will surely impress your guests. Please, no requests for nutritional information, this is DESSERT. Of course it's fattening and probably should be eaten on rare or special occasions. You've got a brain, so USE IT.
