    Yummy! Cooked 40 minutes and could have cooked a little less. Didn't have ice cream but that would make it over the top!

    Wow, this is delish! The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because it's so rich. If you can afford the calories then this is for you, dig in. Got rave reviews from friends.

    I saw this recipe in the Feb 2010 issue of SL...and was intrigued. I will say this, it's probably not the most wise thing to attempt to alter the recipe the first time, but I did. I changed two things, one that turned out to be great idea and one that was a definite bad idea. I sprinkled 1 - 1.5 cups of toasted coconut over the banana layer (so good) and substituted buttermilk for the milk (not good, as the batter overflowed the pan). But despite the milk mistake, this was a great recipe and one that I would make again.

    this is amazing! I actually decreased sugar by about 1/3 for both the cobbler and streusal topping; additionally, I substituted half cup naural applesauce for half of the butter used in both the cobbler and streusal; it made it very moist and more healthy (great for breakfast!) I served it with "Purely Decadent" vanilla soy ice cream [from Publix] that has less sugar and alot of fiber for ice cream :)

    Delicious! Mindlessly easy too. I didn't have any nuts and it was still excellent. Would like to add some next time. I had all ingredients on hand except for the ice cream which is a must. Great company dessert....easy to put together and bakes during the time it takes to eat dinner.

    Fabulous! Easy! and I always have the ingredients on hand. I did subsitute 1/3 cup vegetable oil for moistness, and it worked just fine. And I used over-ripe bananas, just kinda of mushing them over the top of the batter. Sorry, I know it doesn't sound very Martha Stewart, but I'm so tired of banana bread and smoothies as the only way to use up ripe bananas.....this is perfect!

    This is absolutely wonderful. I am allergic to eggs and this was a great find.

    Holy Cow! This was so fine. My husband and kids went crazy for this and it didn't require a special trip to the store for ingredients. I can't wait to make this for football games this fall. Delicious!

    My new favorite comfort food! I had this at a friends' house where we all devoured it while it was still warm. She served it without the streusel, and it was still great. I might serve vanilla ice cream on the side when I make it.

    Wonderful!! Easy and so good! Company loved --will be making again! I did use about 1/4 less sugar and did not miss one bit. Used a little butter from 1 stick for mix to grease pan instead of adding anymore.

    This was great! I have served it several times at home & have taken it to events & always enjoyed much praise. My husband loves it. I served ice cream a couple of times, Blue Bell's Mexican Praline since I didn't have vanilla. It was superb.

    Very good and maybe I should throw in that fifth star for the ease to prepare. I have to admit, I love coconut so just had to add a little on top. This is good any time of the day.

    This was wonderful. I served it with whip cream and another time with vanilla ice cream. Mine was more like a cake than cobbler.

    What a crowd-pleaser! I have made this recipe three times already over this holiday season, and everyone LOVES it! I make the recipe as provided, but right after I take it out of the oven, I pour a jar of caramel sauce over the top. The cobbler soaks it up, and makes it even more delicious. This is not the low-cal variation, but it sure is yummy!

    Delicious!!! If you have ripe bananas in your kitchen right now, go ahead and slap yourself if you don't make this TONIGHT! It's that good, seriously. Loved it with ice cream....what a unique way to use up those bananas instead of muffins or bread. This is good warm, cold, or room temp. Just can't go wrong with this one!

    Well I have to admit...when we ate this for dessert, I was not very impressed. However, after leaving it in the fridge for a couple of days, we felt obligated to finish it. It was sooooo much better after sitting. The topping actually stayed crunchy. Perfect amount of sweet and saltly...mmmmm. I have one in the oven right now!!

    I just made this for my MIL's birthday. It was delicious! Everybody Mmmmd after their first few bites! I did change a couple things however....I used dark brown sugar instead of light (my own personal preference as to make it slightly less sweet) and when making the struessel topping, I added some more flour because it seemed a little too "wet" without adding it. Even then, it was still pretty sticky when "sprinkling" it on top. However, in the end it turned out to be fabulous!
