We use our microwave a lot to reheat food but did you know that you can actually cook using one? It’s so much quicker than heating up the oven and more cost effective if you are only making something small. We have a Panasonic microwave oven, but most microwaves can be used to cook food, just check that you are using a microwave safe dish to cook your recipe in. This recipe for microwave banana pudding can also be made in the oven but is much quicker in the microwave and still tastes as good.
I’m sure every family is the same, we always have a couple of bananas left over from the week and it’s nice to make something other than banana bread with the leftovers. This pudding is really easy to make, just pop it in the microwave and you have a really quick pudding – perfect for school nights! If your children aren’t a fan of cinnamon you can leave that out or even add chocolate chips instead for a little treat.
It’s absolutely delicious served warm and with vanilla ice cream. It’s also a great way to get a little bit extra fruit into the kiddies!
