MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

"Really good!!! I agree with the other review about being reminiscent of bananas foster. There's a hint of caramel without being sweetly overpowering. I may reduce the amount of lemon peel next time (a bit too much of the lemony taste for me), but a great recipe!! The whole family loved it!!!!!"
