    My son used this recipe for one of his 4-H enteries last year and received a blue ribbon. I personal thought it could have been a little sweeter. Make sure the bananas are VERY ripe.  -  30 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This turned out perfect! I followed this recipe to a "t", only adding a touch of nutmeg AND cinnamon. Great, great, great!  -  02 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
