Banana Casserole

Really sweet, a little goes a long way. Delicious hot with vanilla ice cream.
  • 6 bananas
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
Slice three bananas lengthwise, place in buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup butter slices. Top with half the raisins and pecans. Make a second layer with remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brandy, if desired.
I served this (teetotaler version) at a recent church supper and some of the ladies (Southern Baptist, no less!) suggested rum would be good it in.
