Minatamis na Saba with a twist
Bananas. We, Filipinos love them. Every part of the Banana tree is useful. Some we can eat and some we can use for cooking and other stuff. Today, we decided to cooked the traditional minatamis na Saba or Sweetened Cardaba banana with a twist. Funny that I have to Google Saba for the benefit of other readers. This dessert is very simple and I bet you and your lovely kiddies will love it. You can even serve this for snack.
To cook, again, I’m not a fan of measurement so you can just decide how you will measure depending on the number of people who will eat.
10 Ripe Saba – cut into wedges, Brown or Muscovado Sugar, Water, Butter and Cinnamon powder. I used 1 cup of sugar and the same for the water. Feel free to experiment on your desired consistency if you want to add more water or sugar.
How to cook:
On a medium heat, put the banana, water and sugar in your pan and cover. Bring to a boil or until the the banana is soft when you stick a fork in it. Once you have that consistency, add the butter. I used about 1/8 cup and then lastly, put 1 tbsp. of cinnamon powder. Let it sit for a few minutes and then serve. I suggest that you don’t put ice because the butter will solidify and this dessert is best served hot.
Here’s the actual photo. Can you see the cinnamon and the buttery syrup with sugar is just delicioso! Making Dora happy! :D
So there, regular Filipino dessert with a twist. Our version of Minatamis na Saba with a twist. Enjoy!
