    OH How simple this is and yet fit for a Queen or King and their court!!! Simple and decadent at the same time, for adults and children alike. A lovely, light, dessert to end any meal whether in Africa, USA, or any other country. Lovely! Adopted from the U of Penn African cookbook

      Great dessert. I used the curacao with this. We really enjoyed the topping on this too. The neighbors and us enjoyed this little treat this evening.The coconut was a nice touch too. And yes, it went well with vanilla ice cream. Made for I Recommend Tag.

      I didn't use the sour cream garnish, but imagine that would be delicious. This was so yummy, I promised myself I would only eat half a banana, but ended up eating a whole one! I'll make sure I have some ice cream next time, and be totally decadent! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT.

      Great little treat, and it is very simple to make. I used some toasted coconut that I had left over from a different recipe and that with the chopped peanuts sent this to the top. Something sweet like this that only takes 5 minutes to throw together is a recipe that has many uses, and I ususally always have these ingredients on hand. I could easily see this with vanilla ice cream as well!! Made for ZWT-7.
