The texture and flavor was wonderful. The only problem I had was knowing how much cane syrup to use in the recipe. I was afraid it would be too sweet with the banana nut caramel mixture, so only used 1/4 cup. It needed more. Otherwise, absolutely delicious as written. I served with cafe au lait, of course.
