If you don’t have the time or the energy to make the pastry shell used in this recipe just use a bought one, but make sure you get one big enough, as you don’t want the filling overflowing in the oven.
To be honest I don’t think this is particularly ‘tropical’, but it still sounds good. It’s really just an apple crumble with bananas, coconut and pecans – does that make it tropical, I leave it to you to decide……..
I have no idea what the calorie/kilojoule count of this dessert is, but as I think you’d also have to finish it off with cream and/or icecream on top, it’s probably better not to know and just enjoy it.
I was looking for a nice warming winter dessert when I found this recipe. It’s probably best served cold, but it might work warm or at least not straight out of the fridge.
This one comes from a 1974 New Idea section named Tasty Meals on a Budget. It’s a rice bubble, banana, coffee and marshmallow delight. I can’t decided just how the filling would taste, although I do think it’s one for those who have a sweet tooth.
This recipe was in a liftout booklet from the Women’s Weekly back in October 1991. It’s another take on the old bread and butter pudding with the twist being fruit loaf and banana instead of plain old white bread and butter.
This is a bit of a twist on the usual carrot cake. No eggs needed and a great way to use up very ripe bananas, which is always useful.
