I have this habit of listening to radio while I work. With music on, my mind is more attentive, works faster and tend NOT to fall asleep. ;-) Being Valentine's day, am having an overdose of sweet, lovey-dovey songs and love stories/poems from radio listeners since morning. Pardon me, am in no mood to talk about it anymore. (I already wrote much in my last post). We all know the importance, so let me just jump right into today's recipe as that's what I am most excited about! :-)
Those heavily freckled, overripe bananas that usually take a permanent space on our cooking counters taste yum in baked goodies. Don't throw them away. Make a pudding cake for a change and treat your friends with this scrumptious dessert. Also note the ingredients list is very similar to what you would want to make pancakes. How about you switch the plans and make this pudding cake for breakfast instead? :-)
|...Love is in the air..|
|..all decked up..|
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup blueberries (I used dried. fresh or frozen ones can be used too)
a pinch of salt
1 cup milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 overripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
For topping - 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup maple or golden syrup and 1/2 cup boiling water
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Grease the bottom of casserole dish + few ramekins or a big 2.5L baking dish. Keep aside.
In a bowl, add the mashed banana, milk, melted butter, beaten egg and vanilla extract. Whisk together until well combined. Keep aside.
Sift together - flour, salt, powdered sugar and baking powder.
Add sifted dry ingredients to the banana mixture and mix gently.
Toss blueberries as well. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish.
For the topping, place the brown sugar, maple syrup and water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce it to simmer and let it thicken a bit.
Pour few tablespoons of boiling mixture on top of the pudding and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a toothpick.
Serve. I liked the cake plain and simple. You can also try with some vanilla ice cream.

|I couldn't wait for long to dig and eat it all! Yum! Oooh, I simply love overripe banana in baked goodies.|
|I later also tried Banana Butterscotch Pudding Cake without blueberries or the brownsugar topping. |
It tasted equally delicious! :D
Before I say goodbye for today, let me share the one and ONLY gift TH gave me in all these years we have been together. :-)
