This was a little too sweet for my liking. I used strawberry marmalade instead of orange, because that's all I had on hand. I liked the idea of baking the bananas, but I think this would taste better without the sugar and maybe some more lemon. I'd like to try this with with chocolate syrup instead of the marmalade too.
