Doce De Banana (Sweet Banana)
from Enjolinfam

A popular dessert in Brazil. These bananas are delicious and worth the wait for them to simmer. From the cookbook "World of Cooking - The PBS Series"


  • 5 small bananas, peeled and cut in half or 2 large bananas, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 cups water

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.

Cook slowly over low heat for 2 hours. If the syrup becomes too thick, thin with a little water.

Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
