      Wow-I have honestly not had anything like this before. The batter was way too thick when I mixed it up, maybe I measured the masa wrong, but I added a little additional rum and a little milk to make it a "paste like" consistancy. Then when I rolled the bananas in the thick batter, I helped it along by smoothing a little batter on the bananas with the back of a spoon. The end result is really cool. Crunchy, sweet and cinnamony on the outside, and warm, creamy, and naturally sweet on the inside. The banana has almost a pudding consistancy to it. My DS thought these were great, and so did I. Thanks for sharing this recipe Nan. Nick's Mom
