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 was good- a nice change to normalbread and butter pudding. I used hot cross buns, and mixed in two bananas as suggested and cooked it in the oven. i cut out small circles of the pudding and served as part of a trio of desserts. Went down very well!

We prefer to have some of the banana inside the pudding as well as on top, so I make the bread, butter and banana into little sandwiches, then pour the eggy mixture over.

Do you toast the bread both sides ?

really easy, used teacakes instead... was nice with the extra raisins and sweeter bread. Think it makes a lil bit too much milky mixture, ended up throwing about 1/4 of it away. went down incredibly well though, defs going to do it again.

I prepared this well in advance to let the milk soak into the bread, put it in the oven for 30 mins and it was divine! I didn't have any cornflour so just left it out and it was fine. I too only used 50g of sugar which was sweet enough. My family loved it, the children requested I make this every night! It's a good recipe to have as it's so quick and easy to prepare and I always seem to have plenty of bread which is going stale and bananas which are going soft, so think this will be a regular pudding in our house! It's not elegant to look at but very tasty, try it!

Big hit in our house. Very simple to make but lovely. I used a deep dish so need to give it an extra 4 mins in the Microwave but that was fine. Wonder if it would work with cooking apples?

I made the chocolate orange version in the oven, very good comfort food, served with custard!
