    BarbryT's Note:

    The topping is the thing here. Besides the banana, pineapple, crushed or diced, may be added or substituted for the banana; you also may add some orange sections. Since Zanzibar is the Spice Island, the strong use of cloves and cinnamon as garnish add greatly to the authenticity as well as the flavor of the dish. Cook time is chill time.

      This was a really nice twist on a familiar favorite. I played with the proportions a bit... I used the full amount of pudding (banana-flavor, since that's what I had), but replaced half of the bananas with blueberries (well, not for mine, since I'm allergic... but for everyone else); I also made the full amount of topping but cut the sugar in half, and am glad I did -- the pudding is definitely sweet enough on its own. I made four servings out of this, using parfait glasses: first the bananas, then the pudding, then the blueberries and more pudding, topped by the spice/sugar/nut mixture. So good!! Thanks for sharing!!

      I didn't have any peanuts whan I went to make this today so I used almonds as I figured they are more African than walnuts or pecans. As another reviewer said it's the standard banana pudding with a very nice difference in toppings. The spices and banana are very complimentary. I can't imagine why this would take an hour and a quarter to make. It used purchased pudding or instant. I chopped the almonds and mixed the spice blend and made the instant pudding and was finished in well under 10 mins. I wouldn't want the finished pudding glass to sit more than a few mins after it's made as the bananas don't fit tightly to the glass and there are air spaces around them, If left, they would get brown and not look very tempting when served. It's a great family dessert that's easy to make and tastes yummy.

      Lovely recipe, I used the custard and it was like banana sutard with a difference. The spices add a great flavour to this desert and DH especially loved tha fact it had nuts! A lovely recipe to make again for a cool desert. Thanks for a great old fashioned favourite with a twist!
