  1. Very Tasty!
  2. DH gave this at least 6 stars. I made this exactly as per the recipe & think it was perfect. Very quick & easy to make - can't wait to have this again. Made for ZWT5 Zingo by a Hell's Kitchen Angel.
  3. Wow, so many of my favorite flavors in the same place. Butter, brown sugar, bananas are balanced by the allspice, rum, allspice, fresh lime juice and pineapple. Sooo delicious, and so easy!!! Big thumbs up!!!! Made for ZWT5, Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.
  4. May I just say DELICIOUS? I cut the recipe in half because I have been making too many sweets this tour! Glad I didn't not make this one though. Thnx for posting, LoriInIndiana. Made for ZWT5 for RRR
  5. Yummy dessert! I made this as directed except I made one portion and served it over chocolate ice cream, lol. Very easy and good. Thanks LoriInIndiana for a great treat. Made for ZWT5 2009 Family Picks.


  1. This was so good. DD loved it also. I used grape seed oil instead of butter to be dairy free and replaced the rum with fancy molasses and an extra squeeze of lime and dash of orange juice. I used sea salt instead of kosher salt and unlike the previous reviewers I did use fresh pineapple and would definitely recommend it. I used unsweetened coconut instead of sweetened. I served this alone and it was wonderful. I can imagine how good it would be on ice cream. I will make this without the rum but with a substitute for it including molasses again and I would also like to try it with freshly grated coconut. Photo posted. Thanks.

Hey there! I am the wife of my dh, Steve, to whom I've been married a very short 12yrs. I am also the SAHM of three boys (11yo and 4yo at home, 23yo on his own). My middle insists that you know he is #57 in the picture, the first player facing you. LOL I graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Pre-Professional Psychology, which I get use of here at home frequently. I enjoy entering local bakeoffs and contests, creating handmade cards and am active in my local MOPS group. I have a extensive collection of cookbooks, but have found that Zaar has taken care of my appetite for any hands on cookbooks. I just love to bake, especially for the high school football team here during the fall. It is my favorite time of the year......sweaters, bonfires, leaves, pumpkins, caramel apples, football, all the stuff about fall is fun! Thanks for checking out my "about me" page and I look forward to seeing you around on the boards. <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="web site hit tracking"></a><a href="">Staples Office</a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
