OMG!!! This was FANTASTIC!!! I made this according to recipe (substituting rum extract with vanilla). I used 100% pure maple syrup. This was definately a hit. I will definately make this again. Paula, you have done it again. I have never been dissappointed with any of your recipes.

My mother-in-law does a huge southern breakfast every year for Christmas...it solves all the we have to visit with both our families problem. She made this yesterday...I love bananas foster...this was absolutely awesome!!! It was all gone and there was a crowd begging for more. The only change we made was using a squirt of whipped cream on top...made it that much better. I heartily recommend this recipe.
