    Delicious Bits's Note:

    I originally got this recipe from the Australian Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, but I've since modified it to suit my tastes or to what is available at the time. The recipe will lend itself to all different kinds of fruit, you can also add some nuts. It is a super quick dessert that is perfect to impress your guests with.

      Oh my...this was amazing! So easy and quick. I used organic bananas and I didn't have any brandy so I used pure vanilla (1tsp). This could be very addicting. I plan to make this with fresh peaches this summer. Thanks for posting and sharing.
