Great, easy to make from store cupboard ingredients. Served with toffee sauce. Will definitely make again, children helped make it and loved it!

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.

Saw this one day while browsing desserts (everyone fancied something new). Made it exactly as it says, and it came out perfectly (My microwave is only 600W i think). Made for family and some friends, topped with golden syrup/toffee sauce, and cream/custard... Everyone prefers a different combination :3 Love this recipe I've made it countless times since I found it, thanks.

My pudding just would not cook in the middle in the microwave. Next time I will bake it on the oven. A very good stand by recipe.
