Banana Bread Cobbler


I had some bananas that where about to be over ripe and instead of making the usual thing that comes to mind (banana bread) I thought I would give this recipe a try. It’s also egg free if you have an allergy. I really like how light the dessert came out. There’s just enough sweetness in the dish to finish off a meal. It’s also got that rustic feel to it, so you don’t have to plate it so perfect, just top with ice cream and you’re done. I heated mine a little before I added the ice cream, because I really like the cold ice cream with a warm dessert.
