Microwave Banana Pudding ... 3 Variations


Quick, easy and so delicious!!! Thanks to BBC Good Food for this lovely recipe. I loved the chocolate chips and raisin version more than the plain one. I think that this would have been better with a sauce though.

Microwave Banana Pudding ... 3 Variations

Recipe adapted from  BBC Good Food

*  Prep. Time : 10 minutes
*  Cook Time : 3 1/2  minutes
*  Serves : 3

  • 50 gm. butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 ripe banana (Use over-ripe bananas for this recipe ... the browner and softer the bananas, the stronger the flavor when baked )
  • 50 gm. light brown sugar
  • 50 gm. plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • Icing sugar, toffee sauce and ice cream, to serve, if you like

    • Lightly butter 3 non-metallic pudding moulds / individual glass bowls.
    • Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl on High for ( 30 sec. - 1 min.) until melted. 
    • Add 3/4 banana, mash into the melted butter.
    • Add the sugar, vanilla, egg and milk. Mix together well.
    • Mix in flour and baking powder until smooth.
    • Spoon the mixture into prepared bowls, taking care not to fill them more than half full or they will spill over when cooked.
    • Slice the remaining banana over the top, then return to the microwave and cook on High for 2 1/2 minutes until cooked through and risen. 
    • Serve warm, dusted with icing sugar, if you like, with a drizzle of toffee sauce and a scoop of ice cream.

      Variations:
    • Divide the mixture in 3  equal parts.
    • Spoon one part in the mould / bowl, place banana slice on top and microwave as above.
    • Add (1 tsp.) chocolate chips in one part, spoon in the mould / bowl, place banana slice on top and microwave as above.
    • Add (1 tsp.) raisins in the other part, spoon in the mould / bowl, place banana slice on top, sprinkle (1 tsp.) brown sugar and microwave as above.
