It was difficult to tell if it was done. I cooked it for 4 hours. When I stuck the knife in it was wet so I cooked it for another half hour. It was burned all around the outside.

You gave us the main recipe twice. No Caramel-Banana Sauce recipe was included. :-(

Looks delicious, but as noted with the previous recipe, with such a short cooking time, it is not practical to have for breakfast.

I'm thinking you could just brown some bananas in a bit of butter and add that to a jar of caramel sauce. That said, I bet nobody from BHG reads these posted replies so they'll never pick up on their mistake.
