Recipe: Banana Caramel Pudding Cake

May 27, 2010 at 7:03 pm 2 comments

I made this recipe tonight for dessert.  It’s from the Weight Watchers website, and it’s 5 points per serving (or 4 without the pecans*).  It is DELICIOUS.  The ingredients are – for the most part – things that are just hanging out in your pantry.  The only problem with this dessert is that I have extra servings left and they are calling me to come eat them. MUST. RESIST. THE CALL.


2/3 cups dark brown sugar, packed
2 tsps all-purpose flour + 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans*
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup banana, mashed (about 1 banana)
1/2 cup 1% milk
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups water, boiling

Preheat oven to 350.  In small bowl, combine brown sugar and 2 tsps flour; set aside.  In a larger mixing bowl, combine remaining flour, sugar, pecans*, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg, and stir with a whisk.  In another small bowl, combine banana, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring just until moist.  Spoon batter into 8″ square baking pan.  Sprinkle batter with brown sugar mixture.  Pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water over batter (do not stir).  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until pudding is bubbly and cake springs back when lightly touched in center.  Serve warm with 2 Tbsps fat-free vanilla ice cream.**

Servings: 10       5 Points per serving, or 4 points without the pecans*

*I omitted the pecans.  Don’t like ’em.

**If you’re counting points, be sure to add one point for the ice cream.

    HA! Good catch. That should be 1/8, not 18. That would be the nutmeggiest dessert ever.
