While I’m waiting for my Korean drama to load, I might as well post something (hopefully) worth-while. A week ago, I tried this dessert in the Eastwood Food Junction and decided to try it out for myself. Since this is practically an experiment, there won’t be any exact measurements since I don’t really measure unless I see a recipe from a cookbook.
- Lumpia Wrapper
- Mascobado Sugar (or any sugar, really, but i guess just not white)
- Lots of melted butter
- Saba Bananas sliced lengthwise
- Crushed Peanuts
- Roasted sesame seeds
- Brush melted butter all over the lumpia wrapper.
- Put some mascobado sugar on one end of the lumpia wrapper.
- Place the banana slice on top of the bed of mascobado and cover it with as much mascobado sugar you please.
- Drizzle crushed peanuts and roasted sesame seeds on top of the mascobado covered banana.
- Roll it up as you would a lumpia or normal turon. Seal the ends with water.
- Brush the whole turon with butter and pop it in your over toaster for 5 minutes. Brush and flip the turon every 5 minutes until you get the desired toasty color and the bananas are soft enough.
I tried to make a ‘sauce’ or ‘dip’ for this just so that it’d seem a little more ‘gourmet’ than your usual turon. I just used cold all-purpose cream and mixed it with some condensed milk for a sweet kick. I made sure it was cold cream so that it wouldn’t run and would really be like cream on top.
So there, you may want to try it out for a different turon experience. It tastes a lot like the deep-fried turon, only this one is buttery and tastier cause of the peanuts and the sesame seeds.
Lemme know if you tried this, I’d love to know how your baked turon worked out for you!
