An excellent way to use up bananas which are too mushy to eat. Really easy to make and delicious to eat!

Very surprised this was very good especially with toffee sauce and cream. It only took 6mins to cook the full 8 and it would of started to spoil. I will deffo make this again its a perfect last min standbye.

This was the first cake i ever made in a microwave. It was very tasty and will definitely be making it every time I have some over ripe bananas.

My partner knocked this up in around 15mins, easy, quick and lovely and moist. Would be heaps better with a bit of ice cream to go with it (will have to make sure we have some if we make it again!). A simple, tasty dish

This was a bit disappointing. Mine was not very sponge like and looked a bit grey :( It tasted better than it looked and would probably have been better if I had made the toffee sauce.

Never cooked anything in a microwave before but thought I would give it a shot. Could not be simpler to make - cooks in 8mins while you are eating!! Husband and children all had seconds - really a suprise for a microwave, you would never guess. A great storecupboard pudding. Even better with a smidge of toffee sauce :-)

So so - I made it because I was in a caravan with a microwave and had some over ripe bananas and it looked easy. The final result was alright - my kids thought it acceptable but nothing to rave about.

Incredibly easy to make, wonderful.
I must admit I was a little suspicious at first as I had never dared make puddings in the microwave (which I generally only use for re-heating leftovers really) but I ended up being really surprised by the stunning result. I split all ingredients in half (and reduced cooking time to 4 minutes accordingly) and found the pudding nicely moist and delicate. I will definitely do this again, maybe with cooked apples...

I made this recipe for 3 and it was a bit much :) But it was so delicious!! We served it with hot toffee sauce. So quick and so easy!

My partner does not like bananas. Can I make this with another fruit as well?
