“I found this recipe in Bon Appetit magazine in September 2003 and LOVED it! I never copied it, lost the magazine... and for some reason it never made it on to the epicurious web site. I was so bummed. Then lo and behold... I opened up an old box of cookbooks and found the magazine again. Here it is for safe keeping. I never use the bananas, but imagine they'd be good on it.”
