Amazing! I didn't have dark rum, so used light rum and it was still fantastic, although I'm sure dark rum would add a nicer flavour. Delicious over ice cream, as the warm caramel bananas melt the ice cream. Yummy!

I didn't use rum at all and used it to top buttermilk pancakes. Completely delicious!
