Banana Crumble

Here’s What You Need: 

8 pieces ripe plantain (Saba)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, very cold
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
Banana slices  for garnishing
Vanilla ice cream to serve

Here’s How: 

Cook the bananas in simple syrup: In a large pot, combine bananas, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil then lower heat to simmer. Let simmer until liquid is thick and syrupy and bananas are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine cinnamon, sugar, and flour. Cut in the butter and mix with your hands or by using 2 knives scissors-style until mixture is mealy. The consistency should be like wet sand; if it’s too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time.

Divide the cooked bananas and the syrup into 6 small ramekins. Top each ramekin with the prepared crumbs. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. If desired, set aside a few banana pieces for garnish. Lay banana slices on top and brulée. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
