Guava and plantain pudding(courtesy of Patricia Sloley)
This is beyond delicious. Try it with cream, ice-cream or on it's own.
2 over-ripe plantains
½ tsp mixed spice
½ tsp grated nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tin guava halves, drained, de-seeded and quartered
2 tbsp olive oil
150g/5oz plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 180oC/fan 160oC/350oF/gas 4.
1. Peel, slice the plantain lengthways and remove the seeds. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the mixed spice and nutmeg, sultanas, vanilla extract, guava and olive oil and gently mix. Sieve in the flour and baking powder and gently mix again.
2. Pour into a greased loaf tin and bake in a pre-heated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Serve warm with ice-cream or mascarpone.
You can substitute or have it with freshly sliced mango, tinned pear halves and blueberries
