This was wonderful! We served it with a scoop of ice cream - arranged like a banana split. The chopped peanuts were a good crunchy, slightly salty topping. Since I am new to making caramel, it would have been helpful to have more direction on what heat to cook this on and for how long.

Yep, I agree with everyone else! this was a TRUE winner. Thank you so much! I added some cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg to the mix and we absolutely LOVED it. I also used coconut rum. ZWT4 with the Babes in Africa.

Holy Moly Batman! This is good stuff! I really pigged out on this last nite. My better half thought it would be a good topping for ice cream and it was. We'll be making this one again for company. Made for ZWT4.

Made for ZWT4...This was wonderful. I made this at the same time as another similar recipe and we could not decide which we liked better...they were both amazing. I did not have any evaporated milk so I made my own.

For this ZWT 4 challenge of replacing sugar with other substitutes, I used Crema Catalana de Montserrat that we brought home from our trip to Spain in place of sugar. I made this recipe for 2 servings which came out to 2 bananas and sweeten further and to add color, I also added dried blueberries and cranberries. The amount of crema was about 2/3 of sugar only and it was plenty sweet enough. This is very simple and tasty dessert.

Very tasty, simple dessert! I substituted the brown and white sugar with the Splenda blends, and no one was any the wiser. Yummy! Made for ZWT 4.

What a great simple dessert. I made this exactly as written and I love the rum taste that comes through on top of the bananas. It probably tastes 1/2 hour to get the caramel sauce to the right color over low heat. Made for ZWT4.

ZWT4: Made for the African Dessert Challenge. I substituted both the white and brown sugar for half the amount using the Splenda sugar blends. EXCELLENT!! I loved it and now it is even better knowing I cut alot of calories out!
