Banana is such a great ingredient for desserts. The butterscotch and banana work so well together. It's just Delicious.

I made this the other day, and I must of done something wrong, cake didnt rise enough, was gluggy and the sauce was rubbery, I did keep an eye on the time, make sure i didnt overcook, yet i dont know what happened. Shame, was looking forward to it, but after a taste, i threw it in the bin,

I just made this and it was delicious!!!! it's even better when you let it sit for a while because the toffee sauce gets really sticky and thick. I made extra topping as I like my puddings really saucy. It was easy and very yummy. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

I love this recipe.... It is quick and easy and the kids love it too. When we want to make an adult version, we flambé some bananas to serve with it.

It would be VERY nice if this recipe was available converted to what us in N. America use for measurements.
I checked the conversion chart & found it difficult because you have to double convert.
Still looking forward to trying this recipe at home & then at the Group Home I work at! Think it'll be a hit in both homes!
