Preheat the oven to 180°C and melt the butter in the milk in a small saucepan.

Cream the sugar and eggs until thick.

Whisk the warm milk mixture into the sugar and egg mixture together.

Fold the milk and egg mixture simultaneously with the flour and salt until well combined.

Pour the batter into a medium greased pie plate or Pyrex dish.

Place the bananas on top of the batter and push them in slightly.

Bake for 20 minutes at 180°C then reduce heat to 160°C and bake for a further 20 minutes or until tart is golden brown on top. Spice things up with 1 tsp ground cinnamon if you like.

To make the caramel sauce: Melt sugar and cream together, bring to the boil, then gently simmer uncovered until golden in colour (not brown) – will take +- 15 minutes. Stir occasionally and keep a watchful eye on the pot. Add caramel essence.

Pour sauce over warm pudding and prick with a fork whilst doing so to absorb the sauce.

Serve hot with homemade custard.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
