different, a good different
This recipe should be with something to off set it, Kinda reminds me of fried bananas in Mexico, but with a nice sweet twist.
Hubby laughed when I told him I was going to try this! Know what...he's not laughing now, but he is SMILING. Yummmmmmmmmmmy
It tasted like the bananas foster we had when we were on vacation. I added a little alcohol to the adult servings and left the recipe as it is for the kids. I scraped a vanilla bean instead of using extract. It was a hit, they will be asking for it again here.
