This has to be one of the fastest desserts I've ever created! I spent more time thinking of an antonym for sinful than I did assembling the ingredients!
I mean how complex can a pudding get when you don't have to measure out sugar, flour, milk or butter?There are just three ingredients in there - bananas, eggs and chocolate.
But the whole is soooo much more than the sum of its parts! The pudding has a satisfying moist custard-like consistency (it's just a bolstered omelette in disguise after all). And knowing that there's no sugar or fat in it makes it even more satisfying as you reach out for seconds or thirds :)
Ingredients (for 1 greedy person or for two sensible eaters)An overripe banana, mashed
A couple of eggs
About 2 tbs semi-sweet, dark chocolate (chips or a few squares smashed whimsically. I used 70% cocoa chocolate chips)
A few drops of vanilla essence and chocolate syrup (optional)
MethodWhisk together the eggs and banana until sort of homogenous. Toss in chocolate chips and optional ingredients.
Pour into a metal container that has been moistened with water.
Steam for 5-10 minutes. (I have one of those Chinese steamers that you can fit a basin into).
