These are easy to make delights...but be sure when cooking the rum mixture not to put the heat too hig or the rum will evaporate very quickly and could even ignite - and this is not a flambe!

This is just delightful. Taste like a high class banana pudding. Wonderful combination of flavors and just the right texture. Would be great with vanilla ice cream. The recipe didn't say what to do with the last 3 tbls of rum so I added it to step 10, so my topping was not crumbly. I just spooned it over the top of each ramekin. Don't think that that altered the taste or the texture. Thanks for a great recipe.
