OTOH, sticky toffee pudding isn't British, either; it's Australian Kiwi well, from somewhere down there. :lol:

My, ahem, sources, suggest it's Scottish.

I'll grant you the cookies. I won't grant you the bananas: wasn't Eton mess originally made with those? It's definitely a variant, anyway. Bottom line is that banana pudding shares the sweetness, stickiness and nursery food character from the top of the list. The rest is just quibbling.

Funny, to me banana pudding (with or without Nilla wafers) seems very American.

Southern American, to me.

Sue Lawrence, author of Scots Cooking gives it to the Udny Arms in Aberdeenshire, who started serving it in 1961 based on a recipe the cook had found in an ancient cookbook. Lawrence has found a similar recipe in an Aberdeenshire cookbook of 1913. Albion perfide, personified by Simon Hopkinson, attributes it to the Sharrow Bay Hotel in the lake district, but they didn't start making it until 1971. Their's was, they claim, based on an old Lancastrian recipe.
