This dessert was made famous in New Orleans, and the recipe came from a hotel chef there. Guests rave about it when I make it, and it is very easy. —Angie Cassada, Monroe, North Carolina

"I just made this for dessert at a friend's house, and everyone loved it. I served it with Almond Cream Cheese Pound cake, and ice cream. I was a little daunted by the amount of lemon juice in this, and although the citrus-y taste was identifiable, it didn't overwhelm the sweetness. Also, I didn't stir the bananas into the sauce (some of my friends don't like caramel); I just put them on the sliced pound cake and drizzled the sauce over all. Very good."
