READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Acerast

This would be yummy for a tropical brunch. From "Home Cooking with the Uncommon Gourmet" by Ellen Heman. The cooking time includes freezing time for bananas and soaking time for raisins so do these things before bed the night before and sleep in ;)

The taste was good. But I would have like to be able to taste the rum. I let the raisins soaked in the rum more at least 1 hour. Thanks acerast :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
