    sounds really good. my friends mom always substitutes half of the butter in any baking recipe with the same amount of banana (pureed) so I'm going to make this using banana and splenda. of course I'll have to mix the banana and margarine really good, but she does it with all her cobblers and pies - 8/2/08

    Tastey as it is but a bit sweet and almost greasy. I tried again with 1/2 stick (2 oz) butter and 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 skim milk. The batter was a bit too thick so it didn't rise as well. I also added about 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the batter and blueberries, which I don't like but loved the cobbler! - 8/18/08

    This sounds good! I will make it. I just read all of the comments and want to say that the people who said they wouldn't make it because it was too fattening must realize that they are in charge.

    This was an easy recipe, but I'm afraid that's the only compliment I can give it. It was extremely greasy on the bottom, yet it stuck hard to the glass pan. To me it seemed tasteless and needed at least a little salt to redeem itself. Not one I would make again. - 12/9/13

    This was HEAVENLY!! I halved the recipe and made it in individual sized aluminum tart pans.
