Wow! I used the exact ingredients (though did add extra sugar), but tweaked the prep. Soaked the tapioca in the liquid ingredients for five minutes, then cooked them. Added the bananas for another few minutes. It tasted great when warm, but the banana flavors intensified the longer it sat. We ate this at room temp. Delicious! Update: Even more banana flavor the next day, but after that the bananas start to turn...
