MICROWAVE BANANA PUDDING
100 g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
2 ripe bananas
100 g light muscovado sugar
100 g self-raising flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp salt
Put the butter in a 1-litre baking dish and microwave on High for 30 secs-1 min until melted.
Add 1½ bananas, mash into the melted butter, then add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, ginger, salt, eggs and milk.
Mix together well.
Slice the remaining banana over the top, then return to the microwave and cook on High for 8 mins 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.)
I baked it at 180 deg C in an oven.
200 ml milk
200 ml muscovado sugar
15 ml butter
15 ml maizena
200 ml water.
Pinch of salt
Boil sugar, milk and butter in a saucepan. Dissolve maizena in water and add. Boil until thick. Pour over baked pudding and put it 5 min back in oven. Served with Ice cream and custard.
