Top Tip !

If you have a Toaster/Mini Oven, remember they are not just for toast. You can use it to grill, roast or bake and not just restrict yourself to re-heating cooked foods.

Why not try making this recipe with a Mini Oven ?

INSTRUCTIONS - Banana Pudding Recipe (with breadcrumbs)

  1. In a bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, sugar, and spices
  2. Place a layer of sliced bananas in the bottom of an oven proof dish, then sprinkle some of the breadcrumbs mixture on top of these banana slices. Continue layering bananas slices and breadcrums mixture, ending with a lay of the breadcrumb mixture on top. (approx 4 layers of each).
  3. Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the contents of the oven proof dish.
  4. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar over the top of the dish for crunchier topping.
  5. Place in preheated oven, Gas Mark 6, 200 C. for 15 minutes. Then, assuming the top of the dish is already dark golden brown, cover the dish with foil, and replace in oven and bake for a further 5 minutes. (If not brown enough, do not cover with foil.)
  6. Best served hot - delicious on its own or topped with cream, ice cream or custard. Enjoy!

Variations for this Easy Banana Pudding

  • add two tablespoon of sultanas to the breadcrumb mixture

  • add a tablespoon of chopped nuts to the breadcrumb mixture

  • Add another fruit to the bananas (or indeed you could substitute another fruit for the bananas) e.g. sliced apple or pineapple chunks.

Did you know you can freeze bananas?

Yes, that's right. Bananas can be frozen in their skins - the skins will go black in the freezing process but the fruit inside will be just fine. However, generally speaking it's easiest to peel them before freezing and you might also like to slice them before freezing.

Frozen bananas can be used in smoothies, or bananas can be thawed and used in a variety of recipes such as those in the link on this page.

More Banana ideas

Banana and Chocolate Spread on Toast – Smother the toast with chocolate spread before topping with sliced bananas – yummy! This is firm favourite with children and adults alike.

Banana Hot Chocolate Drink –liquidise a ripe banana with a little milk and a pinch of nutmeg. Add this mixture to a cup of your favourite hot drinking chocolate, made with hot milk.

Banana Ice Cream – Simply peel the bananas, chop and place in a freezer bag. Once frozen the banana pieces can be blended to form the most delicious creamy tasting ice cream. Another simple but sumptuous use for bananas. For a change you can top the banana icecream with toffee sauce and chopped nuts. (Just the thought of this is mouth watering - dribble, dribble).

      Banana is not on the top of the list of most popular food for nothing. I used to make banana bread with honey for some time and it was great. Have to try your recipe for pudding ... Thanks!
