Coffee Queen Pudding - Aussie style

Try this quirky coffee dessert recipe from episode 12 of Drive Thru Australia.

Brought to you by


  • 1 Madeira cake

  • 3-4 ripe bananas

  • 1 cup of Baileys cream

  • 1 cup of milk

  • 100 ml espresso coffee

  • 100 g dark chocolate (melted)

  • 6 egg yolks

  • 50 g sugar


  • 1.

    Slice the Madeira cake into 2-3cm slices and line the bottom of a round or square ceramic baking dish.

  • 2.

    Peel and slice the bananas in half and place them into a pot large enough so that they form a single layer. Pour over the milk and Baileys cream and place over a gentle heat to poach for 10 minutes to lightly soften the bananas and to infuse the flavours.

  • 3.

    Remove the bananas carefully from the milk and place on top of the Madeira cake. Spoon over half the poaching liquid. Then drizzle with the chocolate.

  • 4.

    Combine the egg yolks with the sugar and the remaining Baileys and milk mixture along with the coffee. Over a gently simmering pot of water whisk the egg mixture continuously until thick, light and fluffy.

  • 5.

    Pour the fluffy egg mixture over the top of the banana and sponge base. Place this in a medium hot oven and bake until brown on top.

  • 6.

    Serve with custard or ice cream.
