This has become my family's favourite pudding. Uses up ripe bananas and is so quick and easy to make. I serve it warm with lots of clotted cream icecream, my eldest likes to add toffee sauce, too.

The kids loved making this and loved eating it even more. Although we used dark muscovado sugar so it came out a darker colour but it still tasted fantastic, thanks.

I visited my sister who was staying in a furnished apartment for a week, and had no oven, just a microwave. She also had 2 bananas that were about to die a horrible death, so I rustled up this recipe (had to guesstimate the quantities - she didnt have any measuring cups or scales either!) and also included chopped walnuts (how can u have banana without walnuts???)....took only a few minutes to make and was delicious to eat, much better than i expected...i made toffee sauce to go with it, but its just as good without......nice hot or cold....would definitely make again. my only Q is - the flavour of banana is subtle, any way to bring it out more?

Tried it last night and it turned out really well! love the part that you can leave it to cook in the microwave while enjoying dinner! added a bit more cinnamon (a personal favourite) than suggested and sifted some icing sugar on top while still warm... will certainly make again..may be with different fruits this time!

My perfect Sunday stand-in pod when my girls ask for sponge pudding, even banana hating friends asked for more, sometimes microwave is temperamental and overlooks, sometime 6mins is enough, other times needs the full 8...

Really easy and really yummy! Great for using those yukky bananas ip which nobody wants. I baked this in the oven as I already had it on. I used a loaf tin and omitted the milk and it came out lovely.
