Yum. These were delicious. I used the coconut rum as suggested and it was a great hit with French vanilla ice cream. Thanks Muffin Goddess for sharing. Made for ZWT9.

These were fantastic; way better than my Bananas flamb?. I will feature your recipe tomorrow on the Caribbean; hope you come for a visit.

Easy dessert. Prepared it for a Caribbean dinner and it was a hit! I agree that the bananas should not be too ripe.
