Carolyn Soutar Banana and Flake Delight! (No image I'm afraid)
A really quick pudding . I used to serve this after a fancy main course as it used to reduce sensible adults to 5 year olds.
Preheat oven to 180c Fan or Gas Mark 4
One banana per person
One Cadbury’s flake per person
Keep bananas in their skins.
Make a skit long enough for a flake.
Put flake in.
Wrap each banana individually in foil.
Place in oven whilst eating main course, say 20 minutes.
Beverley Ann Hopper makes a fabulous looking Pineapple upside down cake
Pre heat oven to 200c Fan or Gas Mark 6
4oz SR flour
This is for the sponge
A tin of pineapple slices
And a jar of treacle.
Make the sponge mix.
Then in a baking tin put the pineapples cherries and spoon in treacle.
Then add the sponge mix on top.
Bake in oven usually for about half an hour.
Leave it to cool, then turn out onto a plate.
Another pudding from Beverley Ann Hopper is a Banana Loaf
Pre Heat oven to 200c Fan or Gas Mark 6
4oz SR flour
Cinnamon about two teaspoons
And some bruised bananas softer the better
Make the mix
Then add the mashed bananas add to a loaf tin.
Cook in oven for about an hour until brown and firm to the touch.
Cool then turn out of the loaf tin. If it's not greaseproof,
It would be a idea to line the tin first with butter or greaseproof paper.
Serve with custard or ice cream or fresh cream.
My late mother used to make delicious crumbles on a Sunday and this one was my favourite. Rhubarb and Ginger Crumble
Preheat oven to 170c Gas Mark 5
4oz or 112gm sifted self raising flour
2oz or 56gm butter
1.5 oz or 42gm caster sugar
4 sticks red ripe rhubarb
1 x teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons water
Using a knife, cut the butter into small chunks in a mixing bowl.
Add sifted flour and knead until breadcrumb consistency.
Add sugar and stir until you obtain a crumble like texture.
In a saucepan put 2 tablespoons water, add rhubarb which has been cut up into one inch or 25 mm squares.
Place ginger on top and lightly simmer until rhubarb starts to soften.
Pour into a Pyrex dish and place crumble mixture on top.
Bake for approximately thirty five minutes.
Serve with home made custard and double cream. FABULOUS!!

Derek Coles shares his Rhubarb Pie recipe
Preheat oven to 170c Gas Mark 5
8 ounces Flour (sifted)
2 ounces sugar
5 ounces butter or margarine
Sugar to taste
Take care not to over soften when creaming margarine and egg.
Add the butter or margarine to the mixture.
Gradually add the sifted flour and salt.
Mix lightly until smooth, form into a ball ready to roll out.
Allow to rest in a cool place for twenty minutes before using.
Dice rhubarb into small pieces and cook in a saucepan over a low heat until softened.
Add enough water to prevent rhubarb sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.
When cooled, spoon onto to the rolled out pastry base and cover with a top layer of pastry.
Cook for approximately twenty minutes.
Serve with custard or cream.
