"Just OK. I followed the recipe exactly, but the bananas came out dark so the entire look was not very appetizing, and the taste was just so-so. I expected something caramelized, sweet and gooey, but this was just not delicious enough to waste my precious calories on."

"Very good! I greased the pan and it came out fine. Only a couple bananas stuck to the dish, but it was probably because I didn't grease the one spot well enough. I used egg bread that I bought from the bakery section in the grocery store. It was sliced rather thin, so I just doubled up the slices and it turned out fine."

"This was one of my family's favorites on our Easter brunch menu this year. I appreciated the tip to spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray which I did and had no trouble at all turning it upside down. Once I had turned it upside down, I did stick it back in the oven to cook a little bit more on "top". I used evaporated milk rather than the heavy cream since that's what I had on hand and that worked just fine. I'm confident I'll be making this again--I know my family will request it!"

"Tastes great but stuck to pan and came out mushy. The recipe says "ungreased pan", but I think some cooking spray would have helped. When I inverted the pan onto a cutting board, most of the bananas stuck to the pan. I ended up putting it back in the pan, somewhat mixed up, bananas mostly on top now, and stuck it under the broiler for 5 minutes on high. The high heat put a nice caramelized crispy top to some of it, making it more enjoyable to eat."

"I cut this recipe in half and it turned out wonderfully in a 8 by 8 baking dish. I made it for brunch today. I wish I would have read the reviews because I didn't use the nonstick spray as recommended below and had little issue trying to remove from the pan. Mine did not turn out as pretty as pictured above. But all in all my husband did say he could eat this everyday."

"This is definitely easy to assemble and bake the next morning. Be sure to spray pan so it is nonstick. The taste was a bit too sweet for me. I don't I'll make this again."

"I really loved this recipe because of how easy it was to put together and you can put it together the night before. I did use milk in place of the heavy whipping cream because it's what I had on hand. I think it turned out great even though I used milk. I used regular bread too."

"I used Texas toast instead egg bread, worked fine. It stuck when I went to flip pan so I would spray it next time. Add more pecans if you're a nut lover. Overall- DELICIOUS!"

"This was delicious! A weekend splurge definitely. The only thing I would change would be to spray the pan with cooking spray before adding the ingredients. When I inverted it to serve, part of it stuck to the pan."
