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?
