Having a few really well ripened bananas in hand with a friend of mine coming to visit me for a brunch on the same day . Made up my mind to make a quick fix dessert using the bananas , did seem like a gamble .  Googled and got an easy microwave banana cake pudding recipe . Started Prepping and later found out that all the bananas were not in a condition to be used but as I started .. Wanted to finish the dessert . So brought another set of fresh ripe bananas and went ahead . Made the dessert following it to the core resulting with the entire house filled with a lovely aroma of bananas and cinnamon . My friend Lalitha went bonkers with this cake pudding that she had two helpings and made sure to pack a few along with her as well . The following week posted the brunch table pictures in all the foodie groups that I am a part of with the recipe and to my surprise Lalitha had made the banana cake pudding herself and posted a picture of it . I just love the opportunity to share my little knowledge of cooking and food to one another . You need not burn a hole in your pocket by visiting restaurants, instead just add more variety to home cooking unshackling your palate . This knock out home made version dessert is assured for a sure bet to scoop out every last bit of the wicked cake pudding that you will want to make again and again .
