Method

  1. Toast the bread, spread with butter and cut each slice into 6 equal pieces. Arrange, butter side up, with the banana in a microwavable dish (approx 23cm wide by 5cm deep).

  2. Beat together the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and milk in a jug. In a small bowl, add the cornflour with a little of the milk, mix until smooth, then stir into the jug. Pour over the bread and banana, then sprinkle with the extra sugar. Bake, uncovered, in the microwave on High for 8-10 mins. Stand for 5 mins before serving.

This is absolutely yummy. I didn't use any cornflour just egg and milk( with a dash of cream!). Made a layer of the bread then banana (next time I'll use 2) then a layer of bread. After pouring over the liquid I let it stand for about 45 minutes to really soak in. Topped with the sugar when it went in the oven. Make sure you are generous with it so it goes crunchy. I baked it for about an hour. Next time I'll try a dash of brandy or rum in the custard mix.

Made mine in oven and added chopped bourneville chocolate and drizzled with a very small amount of golden syrup and cream before serving. Next time will add another banana and try spreading half of the bread with Nutella. But was really easy and tastier than I expected. Kids loved it!

Don't ever delete this gorgeous recipe when you update your website, it's delicious! It can also be modified for people reducing their sugar, but the sprinkle on top is a must! I have made it several times, bake it in the oven, usually add an extra banana, and today I am going to try making it with fruit and nut bread as well, instead of just plain bread.

Made it with just chocolate as I realized halfway though we didn't have any marmalade! Still delicious and would definitely make again!

I have made this quiet a few times now. Quick and easy in the microwave but can be a little runny so just give it a minute or two more. Last time had it prepared and popped into oven as sat down for dinner so was ready in time. Worked really well in oven giving it a crispier topping. I've always done chocolate and banana, a mixture of white and plain chocolate works well. Reheated leftovers the next day taste great still.

Maybe i'm not a bread and butter pudding fan but I wasn't overly keen on this recipe, whilest eating it I could only think of it as soggy bread and not as a pudding so this put me off big time. The flavours were OK but nothing special and definatley not creamy custardy as I was expecting, would have much preferred to use up my ripe bananas on a banana loaf .

I made this yesterday and it’s delicious! It quick, easy to make and isn't too sweet. I cooked mine in the oven for 40mins and it came out looking lovely and golden and smelt fantastic with the cinnamon. Evn my husband who isn't keen on bread ad butter pudding loved it. This recipe is a keeper and will make again.

I just made this and it was absolutely lovely! I added white chocolate buttons to it and they worked really well.
