Bananas

Food Waste. Love your Leftovers

Hi again Foodies. Does your fruit bowl often look like this?  Mangy looking bananas that no-one wants, or the half mouldy furry apples. What are you going to do with them? Throw them in in bin adding to the mountain of food we waste each year or make them into a delicious high fibre pud, which will have your family begging for more.

The recipe below is of my own creation, which I served in my cake shop last week. Served warm, straight from the oven topped with a scoop of my homemade rich custard Gelato it had the customers drooling & begging for the recipe. I told them if they followed this blog it would pop up one day. So, if you are out there reading this, here you are. Please leave me a comment below & let me know you have made it.
