Every potluck or dinner party I’m invited, I’m asked to take this banana dessert. It couldn’t be simpler, yet the end result is phenomenal. Add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you’re in heaven!
This recipe can be easily doubled or halved. Just remember that the flour and the sugar should always have the same quantity, so 1 cup flour/1 cup sugar or 2 cups flour/2 cups sugar, etc.
The riper the bananas, the sweeter the dessert will be. Whenever I have bananas that are getting too ripe, I make this dessert. Served piping hot, straight out of the oven or room temperature, it’s absolutely wonderful!
