Banana and Burnt Butter Pudding

               Tan ta na…My Banana and burnt butter pudding is ready for this hot summer evening.
             Though this mouthwatering desert is known to all I tried to twist it a bit and tried to add some distinctive flavor in it. I made it for one of kitty party with my friends and all commented that it is more like a cake they said truly as I also realize after cutting the pudding the texture was just like a cake.
        In BBC good food it was said to serve it by pouring golden syrup / maple syrup and cream. I was out of stock of golden syrup at that time and also leave the cream as my friends are very calorie conscious. It was bit funny as I serve it with chocolate syrup which also has lot of calorie. I used golden caster sugar to make this pudding and the colour comes out brown .So the chocolate sauce colour goes very friendly with it and the result was a great colour contrast.  Do try this wonderful pudding or desert.
