Bananas Foster Bake

Bananas Foster Bake

I received a new cookbook and it just opened right to the dessert section when I took it out of the wrapping, I kid you not. So I decided to look at recipes that would be quick and easy to try. I wanted something that I would have all the ingredients on hand. I chose the Bananas Foster Bake. This recipe can be simplified, if you choose not to use nuts it is just as tasty. You end up with a crisp crumb topping that is a sweet crunchy contrast to the bananas and raisins.
