Daube de banana is just one of many recipes using plantains or banana in the Seychelles. Bananas and Plantains are abundant on the islands there. I love this recipe because it really is representative of the Seychelles and their flavors. Vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and coconut milk make this daube de banana, delectable. I think you will love it.
This recipe was made with ripe plantains. I burnt mine just a tad but it did not spoil it at all, it sort of just caramelized the banana. The flavor is just perfect for a dessert that could be served for just about any occasion.
Did you know that the Seychelles is made up of 115 islands most of which are uninhabited? The Seychelles are known to be a honeymoon destination due to its pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear waters in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
