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I originally made this pudding following the method but found it rather rubbery.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

Just made this for dessert after dinner... Our main course was ready at 7pm and I decided to make this at 6.45pm... So easy, quick and absolutely delicious! A big hit with all the family! The consensus in our house was to add raisins next time... We had it with warm custard... Mmm, mmm!

Very nice. Made it with half-quantities of everything and reduced cooking time to 5 mins and there was plenty for 2 adults and our young daughter. Served it with ice cream and it went down very well all round!

For a bit of variety, I think next time I'll leave out the cinnamon and add a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder and see how that works out.

We used this recipe for my 7year old daughters homework as she had to weigh ingrediants herself. The results were fantastic, moist sponge with a lovely flavour. Great way to use over ripe banananas

This was surprisingly good! I had some bananas to use up so did a quick search on banana recipes to find this. Can't believe how quick it was to make and will definitely cook again. Not good enough for guests but great when desperate for a quick easy dessert, with the ingredients always at hand.

Just made it now, tastes YUMMY! I am not an experienced cook, but i do love cooking! It was simple, tasty and didnt cost an arm and a leg!

I added chocolate chips, used vannila extract rather than cinnamon and added the full 2 banana in the mix rather than put half on top. You also only need to microwave for 6 mins, perfectly moist that way!

Best microwave cake EVER! :)
