Banana Upside Down Pudding

    1 hour

    I ask about for new cake recipes - 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.

    2. Cream butter and sugar and vanilla; add beaten eggs gradually; stir in sifted flour alternately with the milk. Spread over the bananas. Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees) up to 45 minutes. Maybe less. Test with a straw. Turn 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  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Very easy and tasty pudding. Will definitely make again  -  23 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    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  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
