"This was good. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller baking dish. I buttered and floured the baking dish and had no trouble removing it."

"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."
