1 and 1/2 (1 for the batter, 1/2 for the optional topping)
Butter or margarine
30-40 g (to taste)
Grease the heatproof dish with butter (amount separate from listed ingredients). This step is optional, but I recommend it so that it's easier to serve.
Mash 1 banana and thinly slice the 1/2 banana for topping. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Mix the sugar, melted butter, and egg to the mashed banana.
Add the sifted flour and mix together. Mix in the milk.
Pour into the dish, top with the sliced bananas, and bake at 170°C for 35-40 minutes. It's ready when the surface is a bit springy.
It's fluffy and creamy while hot, but like pudding when chilled. Either way is delicious!
It can be sliced into pieces If chilled. (I recommend greasing the dish with butter if you plan to do this.)
Dust with powdered sugar to taste. You could also add some cinnamon in Step 4!
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to think up a way to use up my bananas and eggs, so, I made this snack with what I had on hand.
The banana for the batter should be about 85 g once peeled. It's okay if the batter is warm when you pour it into the dish. Arrange the sliced bananas on top of the batter. The pudding will expand while baking, but will reduce when cooled. If baked in small cups, reduce the baking time to about 25 minutes.
