The kids loved making this and loved eating it even more.
Although we used dark muscovado sugar so it came out a darker colour but it still tasted fantastic, thanks.

I visited my sister who was staying in a furnished apartment for a week, and had no oven, just a microwave. She also had 2 bananas that were about to die a horrible death, so I rustled up this recipe (had to guesstimate the quantities - she didnt have any measuring cups or scales either!) and also included chopped walnuts (how can u have banana without walnuts???)....took only a few minutes to make and was delicious to eat, much better than i expected...i made toffee sauce to go with it, but its just as good without......nice hot or cold....would definitely make again. my only Q is - the flavour of banana is subtle, any way to bring it out more?

Tried it last night and it turned out really well! love the part that you can leave it to cook in the microwave while enjoying dinner! added a bit more cinnamon (a personal favourite) than suggested and sifted some icing sugar on top while still warm...

will certainly make again..may be with different fruits this time!

Great, easy to make from store cupboard ingredients. Served with toffee sauce. Will definitely make again, children helped make it and loved it!

My perfect Sunday stand-in pod when my girls ask for sponge pudding, even banana hating friends asked for more, sometimes microwave is temperamental and overlooks, sometime 6mins is enough, other times needs the full 8...

Really easy and really yummy! Great for using those yukky bananas ip which nobody wants. I baked this in the oven as I already had it on. I used a loaf tin and omitted the milk and it came out lovely.

Saw this one day while browsing desserts (everyone fancied something new). Made it exactly as it says, and it came out perfectly (My microwave is only 600W i think). Made for family and some friends, topped with golden syrup/toffee sauce, and cream/custard... Everyone prefers a different combination :3 Love this recipe I've made it countless times since I found it, thanks.

I originally made this pudding following the method but found it rather rubbery. So the next time I creamed the butter and sugar and cooked it in the oven and it had a nice texture I also made some toffee sauce to go with it as recommended in the serving suggestion but found it far too sweet. So the third time I made this pudding I served it with custard which was perfect and the only way in future that I will serve this pudding.

don't know what I did wrong but turned out like banana bread pudding, but tasted fabulous

Baked this in a conventional oven at GM4 - is about 1 hour the correct length of time?
Very yummy anyway.

Used equuivalent amount of sweetner ( as diabetic) and Maple flavouring to compensate for no Muscovado taste. A new favourite
