“This is an old one Mum used to make during WW 2. I always knew when Dad was coming home on leave, as Mum would make this pudding and get in the cream, and we would have roast beef for dinner. I used to like this cold too, the bananas go a bit dark when cold, but it was still yummy. Recipe by Edie Nelson (My Mum)”
1 pudding

  6. (My note :- Mum used to make this in a coal range, I asked how hot was the oven when she got her first electric one? Answer "Oh! about moderate" The 'Meringue' doesn't crisp up) Cheers, Doreen.
