In a large saucepan melt butter or margarine; blend in the cornstarch.  Add the mashed bananas.  Cook the mixture 2 to 3 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly.  Stir in rum, lemon or lime juice and peel.  Remove from heat.  Beat the 5 egg whites until stiff peaks form; set aside.  With same beaters, beat egg yolks and sugar until light and thick.  Stir into banana mixture.  Fold in the reserved beaten eggs whites.  Turn into a buttered 2 quart soufflé dish.  Bake at 350º F. 30 to 40 minutes, or until center is set.  While soufflé is baking, prepare the Rum Sauce.  Serve immediately with Rum Sauce.
