This recipe is absolutely delicious! However I make it slightly differently: I replace coconut liqueur with marsala (I use All'uovo Bookmark Crema - I'm not really sure how any of these words relate.. but it's what's on the bottle :) It's also VERY cheap AU$7 a bottle here). Marsala is used in Tirimisu.
Instead of wrapping up the sauce mixture and banana in alfoil (I find it leaks and doesn't fully cover the bananas), I put it all (excluding the bananas) into a small saucepan (a 14.5cm one is perfect for one) and add about 1 tsp of all spice. Leave the banana out to start with and mix the ingredients over low-med heat until it starts foaming and the sugar has dissolved. Chop up the bananas into ~2cm rounds and add it to the sauce mixture and stir for a bit, then let it bubble slowly over low heat. Once the banana is soft it's done and you can take it off the heat.
Pour over a stack of two-three pancakes and drop some vanilla icecream balls on top and you'll be in heaven!

PS. Also tried with gluten free flour (not sure what grain) and dairy-free butter (Nuttelex) and it was also amazing!
