Too many years ago I got a blue ribbon for this recipe. Beat out the city sheriff!! LOL Sweet feeling of a win over him!! Anyway the different thing about this recipe is you fry your bananas. It is really, really good and I have made this for at least 30 years. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family and friends have.
