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! :)

I've made this a few times now and it's always a hit with the kids and my husband. It's quick, easy and delicious and a great way to use up bananas that the kids think are too far gone to eat.

I printed this recipe out and stuck it in my trusty recipe binder months ago, poised for when I needed to produce a quick dessert out of storecupboard ingredients. I kept putting off making it, though, being a little sceptical as to how well a pudding that's simply zapped in the microwave for eight minutes could possibly turn out. Well....it was pretty good! I watched it like a hawk and, admittedly, it did go a little chewy around the edges. But the middle was light and fluffy and the flavour was spot on. Whipped up some toffee sauce using single cream, golden syrup, butter and brown sugar and it went down a treat. Brilliant stand-by pud!

it tasted ok but the texture was not as light as it could have been. May try it again just to see if it was a one off.

This is a gorgeous pudding! OK, it's never gonna win anyone a Michelin star, but as a homely dinnertime treat it ticks all the boxes - sweet, tasty, stodgy, comforting, cheap, quick and easy. Absolutely delicious with a toffee or caramel sauce and cream. (ice cream as well would be too sickly sweet for my taste). It is one of my all-time favourite puddings now, and worth getting in a few extra bananas for.

This is so easy to make and very yummy.
I added coco powder to give it a nice chocolatey twist.

So easy to make. Tastes delicious, and very scrummy. Another recipe if you are in a hurry. Always use an extra banana, and leave in microwave an extra minute or two. Great with cream or custard.

It didn't look that appealing when I made it, but it tasted lovely. Used chocolate sauce instead of toffee.

Very quick and easy, so ideal quick treat pudding for the kids. Not amazing texture but tastey enough. Wouldnt make it for guests but for family its alright. Added bit more mixed spice which I am glad about. Would prob make again.
