This is an excellent recipe. It's easy and has become a requested dessert. I had to use vanilla extract the times I've made it but it is still yummy and the sauce gives the banana flavor we were looking for. I did lean the importance of not getting distracted when I add the egg mixture to the hot milk so the egg doesn't start to cook.
