Fantastic pudding all the family loved it. Great use for those bananas that nobody wants to eat.

Very easy and very quick. I just reduced the amount of sugar so that it was not too sweet.

My 7 year old Daughter wanted a pudding & my cooker isn't working. So the Microwave, old bananas & goodfood to the rescue. She read the recipe & we made it together, so easy and quick. So she didn't get bored. Yummy with ice cream. My daughter gives this 10 stars out of 5.

Made this tonight as I have a ton of overripe bananas. Followed the recipe as written, came out lovely, a big hit with husband and toddler. Quite sweet, could probably reduce the sugar and it would still taste delicious, but I did use very ripe (black) bananas which may have increased the sweetness. I had no custard or ice cream in the house so we ate with a bit of toffee sauce - was just fine, but I imagine with ice cream it would be even better.

Very good, very sweet though - good way of using spare bananas up

I had half a banana to use and was toying between this and caramel sauce with ice-cream. I made the right choice! I did half quantities, 4mins in microwave, and cut a kiwi on top instead of banana. Tasted amazing!

We love this pudding, it is sooo easy to put together and very comforting. I have done this a few times now and I've managed to prep it in the middle of cooking the Sunday roast. I have microwaved and oven baked it with equally good results.

Very tasty and as others have said, so easy, no hassle quick dessert. Think I will try this method substituting treacle or ginger instead of banana.

I object to running my oven for an hour to 'save wasting' bananas. This recipe is excellent and with custard it was a real hit. I may also experiment with some chocolate chips next time.

So chuffed I found this recipe- so so much quicker than making banana bread to use up old bananas! I used two whole bananas in the mix and a third banana sliced on top. I put a tsp vanilla extract and mixed spice instead of just cinnamon- delicious! Next time will try adding choc chips and/or cocoa.

I made this tonight and I can't believe how simple and yummy it is! It was so quick to make and tasted lovely. I think it's provably a little too sweet for me so I'll try it with a little less sugar next time. Highly recommend it!

This turned out quite tasty and handy for a quick 10 minute dessert. Family inc. the kids liked it.

Wow this really surprised me. Didn't expect it to turn out so lovely. Very impressed! We had ours with custard everyone loved it, would defiantly make again. Couldn't of been easier

This was amazing! Perfect for a quick dessert and so tasty - every loved it. Served it warm with ice cream - would have loved some toffee sauce but there was none in the shop. Next time definitely. This will be my go to dessert especially when pressed for time.

This has to have 5 stars just for the ease of making and the fact that it comes out perfectly. Ok, so its not the most strong of flavours, and certainly needed the toffee sauce to make it more flavoursome, but it is a lovely moist well risen sponge-type pudding. I made this for the first time today and it took about 11 minutes from starting preparation to being ready to eat! I will say that it does clearly need to be large bananas and very ripe ones at that (mine were too small and not ripe enough) to make enough flavour.

This has become my family's favourite pudding. Uses up ripe bananas and is so quick and easy to make. I serve it warm with lots of clotted cream icecream, my eldest likes to add toffee sauce, too.
