Thel was one of Mum’s golfing friends and a very good cook, there’s a few of her recipes scattered throughout Mum’s collection.  This banana pudding would have appealed to Mum as she and Dad both liked bananas, there were always some in the fruit bowl.  This pudding would have been a good way to use up those that had ripened just a little too much.

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
