Pairs Well With
I found this in a magazine and plan on mixing it up this evening for father's day brunch tomorrow.
I made this and it is very delicious, but very rich. I did change it up just a little. I didn't mix my banana slices in. Instead I poured the brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the pan. (I also used more nuts.) Then I used an egg slicer and sliced the bananas laying them on top of that mixture and followed the recipe from there. I did invert it on a cookie sheet when it was finished and it made a very nice presentation. It was a hit with my family. I might try it sometime with a different fruit, maybe apple slices. It was very easy!!!!
