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.

Actally with creme fresh and toffee sauce this is very nice.

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.

This was absolutely delicious I forgot to slice the bananas for the top but it didn't make any difference to how it came out what a quick and easy recipe to use up ripened bananas I served this with some cream yum! Definately a winner

Just made this. Brillant! So quick and easy! And hardly any dishes! I put the 2 bananas into the mix and 1 banana over the top. Served with toffee sauce & icecream mmm. 8 year old daughters new favourite pudding. Might try with the choc chips next time.

My 13 yr old daughter made this and it turned out really well. It was moist and tasty, big hit with the kids.

8 minutes was too long but i wasn't keeping an eye on it as i should have been, would do slightly shorter time next time. nice and tasty though and very quick, good use of gone brown bananas!

We had to substitute granulated sugar for muscovado, and served with runny honey and thick Greek yoghurt; the kids all agreed it is superb and we shall be trying it again soon.

You don't give the wattage of the microwave. Mine is 800w. Would it work for this recipe?

COuld I use normal caster sugar instead of muscovado?

Loved it! So easy to make, rose well. Over ripe bananas are a must. Dont expect a la carte but really quick and easy if you have unexpected guests for afternoon tea!

This was lovely! Made it the other week with some spare bananas and it worked out perfectly! And it was so simple to make. Took a little longer than 8 minutes as the middle refused to cook. Three of us finished it in one night! (We are students, what can I say?!) I imagine it would be lovely with some chocolate in it.

My 10yr old made this almost by herself ,we added chocolate chips which did end up on the bottom but the pudding tasted great,I also added some vanilla extract with seeds in it, we had it with toffee sauce but it was incredibly moist and could have been eaten alone, tomorrow we are going to eat the rest with custard.A fantastic keep me recipe,thank you !!!Not many recipes can be both so quick and so tasty

Yummy! Made this with my 3 1/2 year old daughter, she was able to mix it easily and enjoyed chopping the bannanas up too. Added some chocolate chips that worked well, love choc and banana together! Recommend as a quick fix and child friendly recipe.

A KILLER! I didn't change a single thing on the recipe. It turned out just delicious! Thanks to BBC Good Food!

I made this with plain flour and 2 tsps baking powder instead of self-raising flour; it was nice and light but would have been better with a sauce as it was a bit stodgy and needed something to go with it. You need to adjust it according to your microwave; mine took 14 minutes to cook, but it's very easy to make.
