Peel and slice the bananas. Divide the slices evenly among 4 ungreased 6-ounce ramekins or souffle dishes.

SOME VARIATIONS:
For a tropical taste, use lime juice instead of lemon juice and add 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger. Substitute unsweetened coconut for the walnuts.

Add 1/4 tsp. ground cloves to the butter and lemon juice mixture. The flavor of the spice is utterly delicious in this dessert!
