I totally agree with the chef! This is as basic a recipe as you're gonna' get. Made for Spring, 2010 PAC. I added a teaspoon of vanilla and am glad I did. I didn't get the full-bodied banana flavor I was hoping for, and perhaps could have used a bit more sugar. However, this recipe, because it is so basic, gives you lots of room to play around in. Basic recipes are essential to helping us learn to be creative. Thanks, Librarybaker, for sharing!
