This definitely was a quick and easy dessert, but I guess I was expecting to enjoy the combination of banana, butter and brown sugar more. I think this would probably be better as a topping to ice cream or a plain cake than it is on its own.

Wonderful recipe for bananas. I used a "too ripe" banana. So I'm not posting a photo. Will make again. Made for 123 Hits.
