Banana Butterscotch Pudding



‘I love your bananas Auntie Claudie.’ A prized compliment from my two year old nephew Xander, but unfortunately given about the only thing I hadn’t cooked. Luckily, there was Hector, Xander’s brother, who seemed to appreciate my Banana Butterscotch pudding with gusto. It’s similar to a banana cake, but is even made better by pouring a butterscotch sauce over the batter before baking. The result is a sticky, sweet pudding. Whatever Xander says, it’s perfect Sunday lunch grub

Taken from Peyton and Bryne.


Bubbling Butterscotch

Serves 6 hearty portions


  • 85g unsalted butter
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 175 g self raising flour

For the butterscotch:

  • 250ml water
  • 50g butter
  • 170g soft brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
  2. Line and grease a 20 cm cake tin (preferably a spring form tin).
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Add in the milk, banana, vanilla extract and egg. Mix well (don’t worry if it looks fairly sloppy and revolting at this point).
  5. Add the flour, mix until combined and pour into a prepared cake tin.
  6. In a non-stick frying pan, pour in the butter, sugar and water. Stir until melted.
  7. Bring to the boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes until the liquid has slightly reduced and turned a golden colour.
  8. Remove from heat and pour over the batter.
  9. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

Directions for use: Serve with lashings of custard, batten down the hatches and enjoy watching the rain pour down.


Hector + cake = happy chappy


One thought on “Banana Butterscotch Pudding

  1. Claudie – I can vouch for the yumminess of the banana butterscotch cake, which was indeed delicious, as Hector demonstrated. As for Xander ignore him – we do – he’s a fusspot. Georgiexx
