Going back to His Grace's original post ("A recipe for Judhaba of  
bananas by Ibn al Mahdi
Al-Warraq p. 375")
it's obvious the recipe came from the book titled:

Annals of the Caliphs' Kitchens: Ibn Sayyar al-Warraq's Tenth-century  
Baghdadi Cookbook (Islamic History and Civilization) [Hardcover] Nawal  
Nasrallah Translator and Editor.



The description is on the website.

You can actually go to Google books, enter the title Annals of the  
Caliphs' Kitchens and search under banana. The original recipe appears  
on page 375.
