5 a day? Could be

pudding, chocolate, banana, sticky, treat

“I’m not eating that” . “It’s all brown & slimy” .  Is this a cry you often hear from your kids, when you point them towards the fruit bowl. You want them to eat a healthy snack & those hard, green bananas you bought just the other day have gone soft already. So, what to do? don’t throw them in the bin, after all they have cost you money, turn them into a delicious pud. I bet the little darlings won’t turn their noses up at this and after all it can nearly be part of their 5 a day.

STICKY BANANA & CHOCOLATE PUDDING  

Serves 4. Contains Dairy & Gluten.

Time taken: 30 mins + 30-40 mins Cooking time Oven Temp 190c, Gas 5, 375F

INGREDIENTS:

100g Self-raising Flour

2 Tbspns Cocoa powder

2. Large over ripe bananas

115g Butter

75g Dark Brown Sugar

2. Eggs

2. Tbspns Milk

Pinch of salt

FOR THE STICKY BIT:

115g Dark Brown Sugar

2 Tbspns Cocoa

200ml Hot water

METHOD:

Sift flour, cocoa & salt together,

Cream together the butter & sugar until light. Add the bananas & continue beating to mix

Lightly mix the eggs together & gradually beat into the creamed mixture, adding a little of the sifted flour with the last additions of the eggs.

Fold in the remaining flour mix with enough milk to mix to a medium soft consistency.

Spoon into a greased, 1.2 Ltr baking dish.

In a bowl, mix together the Sticky Bit ingredients until well blended & pour over the top of the cake mixture.

Place, at once, just over centre of the pre-heated oven & bake for 30-40mins.

During cooking the cake will rise to the top, leaving the gooey, sticky bit at the bottom.

Serve hot with Greek Yoghurt, cream or ice cream.  You can always add more fruit when serving this pudding. I just love it with frozen Fruits of the Forest. Thawed of course.
