I love Bill Granger. There's just something about his smile that can light up any dull and miserable British day. And this pudding will brighten up any cold and snowy day where ever you are.
I saw him doing this recipe last week on Daybreak and just had to try it. I'm always looking for recipes to use up old bananas and this is a cracker! From now on, if there's a banana on the turn it will be transformed into this yummy pudding. The kids love it too. Mr Mean was a little harder to convince, as he thought Butterscotch sauce would be just butter with some scotch in it. He was sure he would hate it. But like I thought - he also loved it!
This hot pudding must be served with vanilla ice cream. The contrast between hot and cold is fabulous! Bill Granger: I salute your pudding and sunny smile!
125g plain flour
1 pinch of salt
120g caster sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 banana, mashed
1 lightly beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
85g butter, melted
For the butterscotch sauce:
140g brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
250ml boiling water
HOW TO MAKE:
Per heat the oven to 180C.
Sift the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into a bowl. Add the mashed banana, milk, butter, egg and vanilla and whisk until well combined.
Pour into a greased 2.5ml ovenproof dish.
Heat all the ingredients for the sauce in a pan until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is nearly boiling. Carefully pour this mixture over the pudding batter and bake for 30-40 minutes until it's firm to touch.
Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
