    I'mPat's Note:

    From James Reeson Alive and Cooking. A good way to use up scraps of puff pastry, I've listed 1/2 sheet of puff pastry cut into strips but James used some scraps that he had frozen from other recipes and thawed them. Times are estimated. Please also note that in Australia pre-rolled pastry sheets are about 22/23 cm square.

      I made this for the September 2010 Aussie/Kiwi Swap. This was my first successful use of phyllo dough. So, thank you for sharing this recipe. The banana was warm and melty. I unfortunately burned the caramel, so had to use store-bought. I will make this again!

      Yum, yum, yum! This dessert is amazingly simple and delicious. Our family loves warm bananas, so it seems this recipe was destined for us. The only modification I made to the recipe was omitting the icing sugar, as I felt the natural sweetness of the bananas was just right. The caramel sauce was the perfect accompaniment. I served each warm, puffed banana with caramel sauce artfully drizzled atop with a dollop of whipped cream on the side. Delicious! DH, DD and MIL all give their approval... and of course me too! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #41)

      I made this with phyllo dough the first time as I had no puff pastry. I then made it with puff pastry as the recipe called for and both were very tasty. Will make again, both ways ;)
