{Valentine's Day Special} Banana Blueberry Butterscotch Pudding Cake - a Step by Step Recipe

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..
Adapted from here.


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.

..in the oven..

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. :-)

  1. Awesome combo...banana and blueberry are great combo...

  2. OMG Siri, missed u so bad just when i saw the last picture, This same personalised water globe that you have sent me too, as a wedding present. It is by far the most wonderful and most beautiful gift I ve ever received. every now and then I just turn the keys to hear the melody and it fills both of us with so much love. Girl, we should talk someday, it been ages. Wish you both a happy valentine day. -Shivani

    1. Babe, you made my day with your comment. I was all smiles and reminisced the fun times we spent together as roommates. How are you doing? Hope everything is going well. Yes, we should talk. Its been ages. will ping you on Facebook. Lots of love. :-)

  3. Happy V Day, Siri!

    Bananas gone mushy and black, sigh, I just found one last evening, in a washed pillowcase ( it was a pretend treat bag- my son was pretending to go Valentine trick or treating- don't ask how a 4.5 yr olds' mind works).I have some blueberries, way back in the fridge, if they are not usable, can I sub S'berries?
    I think I will make this today, a V-day treat for my trick or treater!

    1. LOL! Manasi. your kiddo is so cute. Come to think of it, Valentine's Day trick or treat is a wonderful idea ;-). I am sure this recipe will work with or without any berries. The original didn't have any blueberries. To be honest, I added them as I HAD to finish the last batch as they were lingering around in the fridge since quite sometime.

      Happy Valentine's Day M. Hugs.

  4. Sexy looking stuff Siri! Have a Happy Day! This will leave you no other choice!

  5. so cute siri! love your props too :)

    btw, i bought a cookbook with the amazon gift card i got from you and it's gorgeous, something i have always wanted. will do a review soon :)

    1. Thanks Nags. Thats the new mini casserole dish I bought pretty recently. :-)

      Wow, can't wait to know what you bought. Waiting..Waiting..
