Bread and Butter Pudding Royale

Hi there! I was wondering if you could provide me with a recipe for Bread and Butter Pudding Royale. It's basically a creamy custard, and I know that one of the ingredients is bananas. I was told that this is the recipe that Prince Charles enjoys!

Please can you help?

Summer's Bounty

It's that wonderful time of year when a bounteous variety of vegetables and fruits are overflowing your garden, farmer's markets and the produce sections of supermarkets. Here are two recipes from local farmer James Huyett and his wife, Barbara ("Chipp"), who together own and operate Sunnyside Farm and Orchard Stand in Charles Town, W. Va.

Grandmother Huyett's Corn Pudding

(4 servings)

Butter for the baking dish

2 ears sweet corn

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 cup milk

1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (optional garnish)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 1-quart baking dish.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Steam or boil the corn. When the corn is tender, remove from the pot and set aside to cool. With a sharp paring knife, carefully cut the corn from the cob (you should have about 1 cup of kernels). Discard the cobs; set the corn aside.

In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Stir in the salt, sugar and pepper to taste. Add the milk and corn and mix to combine.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the pepper slices, if desired. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 45 minutes.

Chipp Huyett's Summer Tomatoes

(Variable servings)

Olive oil

Ripe red tomatoes

Basil leaves, chopped

Mozzarella cheese, grated or thinly sliced

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Preheat the broiler. Lightly oil a baking sheet.

Slice the tomatoes into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet and liberally sprinkle them with the basil and drizzle them with olive oil. Cover the tomatoes with the mozzarella cheese. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
