"This was very good. I did substitute sugar for the honey because I was out. I added about 2 tablespoons more banana just to use up what I had. It cooked up in about 25 minutes. I missed that you had to cover with foil. I just put a paper towel to catch any steam. I don't know if the changes contributed to the quick cooking but it was very good and it didn't heat up the kitchen. I found it to be more like a cake. Will make again."
