4 lg Bananas
200 g Caster sugar
6 tb Mandarine juice
3 tb White rum
4 Eggs, separated
1 pn Salt
3 tb Sugar
210 ml Mandarine juice

Loosely related to a dessert from the English-speaking islands of the West
Indies, this makes a wonderful – and legal – winter fruit pudding. Despite
its richness, it has next to no fat and, if you use eggs modified with
omega 3 oil, it couldn’t be more nutritionally sound.

Mash 4 large bananas (if anything, slightly overripe) with 200 g caster
sugar, 6 tablespoons mandarin juice and 3 tablespoons white rum. Separate 4
eggs and beat the whites with a pinch of salt until they stand in stiff
peaks. Fold the whites through the banana mixture gently and turn the
mixture into a serving dish or dishes. Chill for several hours until set.

Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks with 3 tablespoons of sugar until thick and
creamy. Tip the mixture into the top of a double boiler or a basin over
simmering water, add 210 mL of mandarine juice and whisk over a gentle heat
until it reaches coating consistency. Don’t let it boil. Chill for several
hours. Serve with the pudding.
