 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Arborio rice
  • 3 Exotic ripe bananas (about
  • 1 1/3 lb Total weight), peeled and
  • Chopped
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar
  • 3 c Milk
  • 1/4 c Creme de cacao liqueur
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon


Sprinkle about a third of the rice in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole
dish. Then sprinkle on a third of the bananas and a third of the sugar on
top of them. Continue sprinkling in thirds until you're done. Pour on the
milk and creme de cacao and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover and bake in a 375

tender, about 1 hour. Serve warm.
