  1. I did something wrong when making these bananas. They had a nice honey flavor but a strong lemon flavor that didnt work to well for me. The bananas also turned black and mushy. Next time I will turn the bananas cut side down in the baking dish. Four stars for the flavor of the bananas and an easy recipe to make. I am sure the sour cream would be a wonderful addition. Made and reviewed for ZWT 4.
  2. I never would have thought to bake bananas! Yummy! This is a nice easy and tasty recipe that my family enjoyed. We will be making this again. MADE FOR ZWT4 For Daffy Daffodils
  3. This was wonderful. I was a bit skeptical of the sour cream, but it surprisingly works quite well with the baked bananas. It's really easy to prepare, and I'll consider this recipe the next time I have a stack of over-ripe bananas (instead of the usual banana bread). I could easily get used to having this at least once a week. Yum. Thanks, Lavender Lynn. Made for Culinary Quest 2017 (Central America).

  4. I liked it! I did opt for lime juice over lemon. I like limes better and next time I will whisk the juice into the sour cream and opt for the suggestion another reviewer made, drizzle with spiced rum for the adults in the room. Made for CQ 2017

  5. I was very intrigued by the flavour combination of bananas and lemon. The recipe was simple to make and I kept tasting and thought hum, perhaps not my favourite combination. The next bite it became 'this is a little odd but really quite tasty'. I went back and forth between these two thoughts until I realized I had cleaned my plate. :) I was dying to throw a shot of rum in there! Mad for CQ4


  1. I used lime juice instead of lemon.
