I used dark rum as i did not have apricot brandy and i also added a choped down bounty bar to this, my boyfriend was so surprised when he came home and we had this for our engagement-anniversery-tread :) Optional (or not so optional)garnish: Vanilla icecream!

Mmmmmm! We (DH and me) buy between 12 and 15 bananas a week here and usually run out before the week ends. We love bananas because they are good, but also because they are so good for you! This was a wonderful dessert! We used PeachTree Schnapps in place of the brandy. We didn't need ice cream or garnish. We just devoured the bananas with coconut sprinkled on top. YUM YUM!

I like to give it 10 STARS (guess I'll have to review twice)! A Wonderful dessert! Of the ZWT 2006 tour this is now our favorite. Because there are only two of us, I cut the recipe down to 2 bananas. And to the brandy I added a little additional apricot preserves for a little more sweetness. Served it with ice cream. DH had his with peanut garnish and I had mine with coconut. We fought like kids over the leftovers . . . Definitely a keeper. Thanks SO much for sharing!
