Came out perfect! Compliments from picky son and other half. Followed the recipe exactly except I found it needed 9.5 minutes in our 750 watt microwave. At 8 minutes it still had a slightly wet patch on top in the centre. The next time I made it with apple instead of banana and 8 minutes was just right then. Making it with raspberries today (mixing them in after making the sponge bit, and leaving out cinammon).

Found an overripe banana behind my fruit basket and I just made this with half of the ingredients. Cooked 4 min in 700W microwave, came out wonderful spongy texture! Reduced sugar to 35g rather than 50g, sweet enough. Could add some choc chips or flaked almonds maybe. This got to be repeat.

Cooked this with my 7 year old. So easy, fun to make and super quick. What a great standby pudding! I reduced the amount of sugar from 100g to 80g and it was sweet enough.

Added a few tablespoons of cocoa powder for a chocolate & banana pudding - went down very well with my children!

I used half the quantity of coconut palm sugar instead of the muscovado sugar and it was not overly sweet and the caramel tones were amazing. Bit.ly/1peNMBQ

My 7 year old Daughter wanted a pudding & my cooker isn't working. So the Microwave, old bananas & goodfood to the rescue. She read the recipe & we made it together, so easy and quick. So she didn't get bored. Yummy with ice cream. My daughter gives this 10 stars out of 5.
