Submitted by Patricia
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp grated orange rind
1 3/4 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/4 cups shredded raw kumara
1 tbsp melted butter
whipped cream with a drop of vanilla
Add sugar, nutmeg, salt, orange rind and milk to the beaten eggs and mix thoroughly. Add kumara and butter.
Bake in greased custard cups in a pan of hot water in 175 degree Celsius oven for 30 minutes or until set. Slice bananas length ways (1/2 a banana per person is enough), melt butter and honey together in microwave to make enough liquid to glaze the bananas. Fry bananas flesh down in a lightly buttered pan until bananas are soft, caramelised and skin has turned black.
Assemble bananas with skins still on in a bowl with a custard cup and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve.
