    In Thailand, bananas are used for desserts such as this one! Simple recipes like this are also used in the Caribbean! From Vegetarian Times cookbook.

      Excellent desert! The banana famine in Australia is over and we can eat bananas freely without paying a heavy price. This dish was very easy to put together and although I am not a sweet tooth the lime juice offset the syrup flavour and it didn't taste sickly sweet. Thank you Sharon123
