Banana Pudding

I am baaaack!!  Happy New Year to all!!. What a year right!!!. Had a busy end of the year
, my 7 year old was chosen with a bunch of other kids in his class in a science project to represent his school and of course the parents had to get pretty involved as well. But in the end they won 2 place in lower primary category and I got to  work with some very  lovely parents.

Then jetted off ( I was praying the whole way on the flight, am  terrrified of flying ) to Legoland Malaysia as a treat for the boys. Then  finally a relaxing week with my aunts and uncles in Kulhudhufushi.

Unfortunaltley returned back to make to find the water supply plant had a fire incident and no water in the house. Thankfully that got solved within a week. Than again my little fussy one had a nasty bout of stomach flu with severe diarrhea and vomiting.

Got my heartbroken with the news of Air Asia flight ( thoughts and prayers to all families who lost their loved ones.)....phew!!  so you can understand why I  decided to take a break from blogging.

 The boys have to eat a banana for breakfast so there is always bananas in the house.  A few days ago I discovered some over ripe bananas stashed in the fridge and wanted to make a desert with it. I didnt want to make a cake or bread so was searching for a recipe to try when I  came across this recipe. It s a very easy recipe and tastes delicious!!The original recipe was made in a microwave but I hate cooking in microwave. I don't even own one, when I need to defrost or reheat something I usually go downstairs to use my mum's microwave. So I made this pudding in a regular oven instead of using the microwave oven. The toffee sauce  is quite  easy to make you just have to keep an eye on it , in case you end up burning the sugar.

Recipe : Banana Pudding  recipe adapted from  the recipe  Microwave banana pudding from BBC Good Food website.

100g butter
200g over ripe bananas ( about 6 small bananas ) mash 4 and slice the remaining 2
100g light brown sugar ( use regular sugar if you dont have any)
100g self raising flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (if available)
2 large eggs
3 tbsp milk
Toffee sauce :
125g sugar
75 ml cream
25 g butter

Melt butter in a saucepan. Cool.

In a seperate bowl whisk eggs and sugar till thick . Stir in melted butter and mix well.   Add the mashed bananas and milk.

Sift in flour , cinnamon and nutmeg and stir well .

Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5  about 200 degree Celcius, butter a 6 cup capacity oven proof dish  and pour the batter into the prepared dish.  Arrange slices of banana on top.

Bake for  about 45 minutes till the top is golden and a skewer comes out clean

While the pudding is being made prepare the sauce:

Melt  sugar in a stainless steel heavy saucepan ( DONOT LEAVE THE PAN) As soon as the sugar starts to turn golden and melt swirl it around so it turns golden evenly.

Take it off the heat , carefully add cream and butter. Whisk quickly!! It might bubble and spit so becareful.   Pour into a sauce bottle  and set a side.

Once the pudding is done, take it out and  poke a few holes on it using a skewer and drizzle a few table spoons of the sauce on top and leave to cool.

Serve warm with the remaining sauce drizzled on top. I you want to make it a bit pretty dust with icing sugar before serving then drizzle with the toffee sauce.
