The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Caribbean Banana Cake

Caribbean Banana Cake by Gabriel Denison Chandler

I enjoy making this far more than the pedestrian versions of banana bread. You may add a shot of rum with the vanilla if you like: this version doesn't have it.
