This started off to be a cake but ended up as a delicious old fashioned pudding that you can eat cold or warm. Old brown bananas go best in this pudding and you can substitute brandy or milk for the rum.

Didn't have cardamom so didn't have it in! OMG, what a lush pudding/cake. Even my daughter who gags if she eats bananas loved it Will definitely be making again.-01 Oct 2013
I don't know whether it was recipe or me but my cake went total disaster. Plenty of bulbs and cracks during baking, after cooling the cake was more like high pancake. Sorry but I don't give it another try-12 Aug 2016
Quick and easy lovely use of too ripe bananas . Substituted the rum for southern comfort and added choc chips :-)-21 Nov 2013
