Banana Sponge Pudding

Banana Sponge Pudding

A sponge pudding that only takes minutes to make and cook! This dessert is sure to be a hit with all the family, and by cooking it in the microwave, it is ready in no time at all.


  • 100g unsalted butter - softened - plus extra for greasing
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 100g gluten and wheat free self-raising flour (I use Doves Farm)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large free-range eggs - beaten
  • 3 tbsp milk


Serves: 6

Diet: Gluten and Wheat Free

Cuisine: British

Type: Desserts


Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins

Grease a 1 litre microwavable baking dish and add the butter to it. Microwave on high power for between 30 seconds and 1 minute until the butter has melted. Add 1½ bananas, mash into the melted butter, then add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, eggs and milk. Give it all a really good mix.

Slice the remaining banana over the top, then return to the microwave and cook on high power for 7- 8 minutes until cooked through and risen. Test the centre of the cake with a skewer – if it comes out clean, it is cooked.

I like to serve this warm, served with custard.
