Banana Butterscotch Pudding

Want something quick, easy and oh- so- yummy dessert?  This one takes only about half an hour including bake time. You can do this before fixing your dinner meal and it’ll be warm and ready when it is time to serve dessert.

I did this couple of nights ago. This pudding smelled so good; our house was filled with the intoxicating scent of warmed banana and butterscotch. I was tempted to skip  my dinner but I didn’t want to show bad example to my kids so I have to be a good and patient mommy and eat my dinner first before dessert.

This banana butterscotch pudding is delicious alright, I wouldn’t recommend serving it with ice cream though as it is already  sweet enough.   I served it a dollop of fruit-flavored yogurt that the kids like but even that isn’t necessary; plain is better in my opinion.

I first found this recipe here,  but I think it could use a little  less sugar.    I don’t want to mess with the recipe too much,  so I just reduced the amount of sugar by  2 tablespoons,  I also used dark brown instead of white.  I  will definitely make this  again and again and again

no mixer needed, just a wooden spoon and a bowl

Recipe by Bill Granger from Bill’s food

¾ cup + 2 tablespoons (125g) all purpose flour
pinch of salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup + 1 tablespoon (112g) caster sugar ( I used only 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar)
1 banana, mashed
1 cup (240ml) milk
6 tablespoons (84g) unsalted butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¾ cup + 1 tablespoon (140g) brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons golden syrup – I used corn syrup
1 cup (240ml) boiling water

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF.
Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a medium bowl; add sugar and mix. Add the banana milk, butter, egg and vanilla extract and whisk together until well combined.

Pour into a greased 2-liter baking dish.

Topping: Mix the brown sugar, golden syrup and water in a small pan and bring to a boil (give it a stir so sugar is dissolved). Pour the boiling mixture carefully over the pudding, place the baking dish inside a baking sheet then bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.

    Yummy! This sounds like the chocolate pudding cake I make, and I love the pudding that forms on the bottom. Will be bookmarking your recipe because I love bananas.
