Easy Banana Pudding Recipe

Easy banana pudding recipe cooked in large dish with a spoon raised and showing a piece taken out.

This easy banana pudding recipe is just what you need for using up ripe bananas. It's a delicious and comforting dessert made in under an hour!

Folks, if you're looking for a simple but delicious pudding recipe to use up those ripe or surplus bananas then I've got you covered with this easy banana pudding recipe.

Unlike a traditional banana pudding cake recipe which features layers of custard and fresh bananas between vanilla wafers topped with whipped heavy cream, this doesn't involve half as much effort. Or as many calories!

This is an easy recipe. For this classic banana pudding all you'll need is a handful of ingredients, 10 minutes prep, and then you can let it cook away in the oven for 40 minutes whilst you get on with other things!

When I was a kid I loved this comforting easy banana cake recipe. And even now as a full grown adult it's a favourite instant pudding!

What does it taste like? Well it's a bit like warmed up banana bread but in cake form and it's excellent just served that way with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, a little sour cream or creme fraiche.

I've made so many recipes with bananas. If it's an even healthier banana dessert that you're looking for then check out my healthy banana pudding.

I find this my best recipe which can be easily whipped up for those impromptu family gatherings!



  • Bananas
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cinnamon Powder
  • Caster Sugar
  • Egg
  • Plain Flour


  • Bananas - essential
  • Vegetable Oil - any kind of vegetable oil is fine. Don't use olive oil as it will make the banana taste funny.
  • Vanilla Extract - vanilla paste or vanilla essence are also fine.
  • Cinnamon Powder - you could substitute with a pinch of nutmeg or allspice.
  • Caster Sugar - you could use granulated sugar.
  • Egg - I use a free range medium sized egg. Any good quality eggs will do.
  • Plain Flour - essential

You can store it in an airtight container but it should be eaten within 1 - 2 days. Do not put in the fridge as it loses its flavour quickly and the cooked bananas can go black.

I do not recommend freezing this banana pudding.
