    Zurie's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar Tour 2006. The recipe specifies that this should be served with "cream sauce" but does not give the recipe for that. I suggested sweetened cream or warm custard.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups warm milk
    • 1 cup cake crumbs (from any yellow cake such as a sponge cake)
    • 1/2 cup mashed banana
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Buy one those slabs of un-iced cake in a supermarket for this.
    2. 2
      Pour the warm milk over the cake crumbs and leave for 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg. Celsius.
    4. 4
      Whisk milk mixture to make sure there are no clumps. You could put it in a processor to get a really smooth mixture.
    5. 5
      Add all the other ingredients to the milk mixture.
    6. 6
      Mix well, and pour into either greased individual bowls, or into a large greased oven dish.
    7. 7
      Place the bowl(s) in a pan with water (which comes about 1/3 up the sides) and bake about 40 minutes or until set.
    8. 8
      Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Turn out and serve with a cream or butter sauce. (Whatever that means. I copied this from "Cook and Enjoy It", the South African cooking bible!).

      This was delish and a perfect discovery for using up that last bit of cake that has gone a bit dry - i used banana cake so did not add the mashed banana but I did chop a punnet of strawberries through as I love the colour and taste of cooked strawberries - thanks Zurie for this recipe - my DD's thought this was a fantastic dessert !!
