Banana Toffee Pudding

    1 hour

    A lovely, warming banana sponge pudding with warm toffee sauce. I ask about for new cake recipes and this was one my gran thought I deserved to have. It's turned upside down when removed from the oven. It is delicious served with cream or custard.

    1. To make the toffee: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add dark brown soft sugar. Stir till it bubbles and is well blended. Pour into the bottom of a round cake tin. Slice bananas lengthways and place over the caramel mixture.
    2. For the sponge mixture: Cream butter and sugar and vanilla; add beaten eggs one by one. Stir in sifted flour alternately with the milk, along with a pinch of salt.
    3. Spread sponge mixture over the bananas. Bake in a preheated 180 C / Gas 4 oven for approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Test with a skewer to ensure cake is done. Cool slightly, then invert onto a serving dish. Serve with cream or custard.

    Something else. Instead of one big pudding I used individual ramekins placed on to serving dishes and covered with home made custard  -  11 Nov 2010


    Very easy and tasty pudding. Will definitely make again  -  23 Jul 2011


    Very easy to make as all ingredients were already in the cupboard. You'd think it was a sickly sweet pudding but it's not. The sponge layer doesn't have much sugar in it which really balances out the taste. I used soft light brown sugar instead of dark brown.  -  08 Dec 2013
