Recipe

Gooey and delicious, this couldn't be faster to make; use ripe bananas for the best flavor.

Yield : 6 servings
Prep Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 6 slices store-bought gingerbread cake
  • 2 large bananas, sliced
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Combine the cream, butter, sugar, and maple syrup in a small pan and heat gently, stirring constantly until smooth and melted.

2. Layer the cake and bananas in a 9in (33cm) square baking dish. Pour the sauce on top and sprinkle with the pecans.

3. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling. Serve hot.

Variation

Pound Cake and Banana Pudding

For a slightly less rich version, replace the gingerbread with 8oz (225g) pound cake. Pound cake is a slightly drier cake than gingerbread, so after you pour the sauce over, let the mixture soak for 10 minutes, then bake as directed.

Notes

Prepare ahead:

You can assemble the pudding several hours in advance. Toss the bananas in lemon juice first and tuck them under the cake'this will keep them from going brown.

Good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Leftovers can be reheated and used to top vanilla ice cream, chopped fresh fruit, or slices of cake.

    I made this recipe last night. I used pound cake like the variation suggested cause I can not find gingerbread cake in the small town I live in. I thought I had pecans but I did not so I used almonds. Please note I am not one to substitute ingredients but I wanted some sort of "nut" in the recipe. This dish is quick and easy to make. My husband ate it with Vanilla Ice cream and I added a dash of milk to it. It is a rich dessert so it helped cut donw on the sweetness. I will make this recipe again!
