Wonderful easy dessert! I used glazed donuts and I ran out of pecans so I sprinkled granola on top I love the caramel sauce with just a hint of rum. I bought a few extra doughnuts and the next day I cut three doughnuts up and made the caramel sauce and poured it over the doughnuts in an oven proof dish and sliced bananas over top and put it under the broiler for a few minutes both equally good! The way its written and served would be a great way to serve to guests. Thanks Bev for a great recipe!
