Sticky Bananas

This is a Brazilian dessert called 'Doce de Banana' For those who like bananas this is a really great dessert. Some people like to eat it plain just as it is. But to me it is a bit too sweet. So I chose to serve it with Vanilla ice cream. Reaallly Good...

For this big amount. All you need is:
6 bananas (cut into big chunks)
1 Cinnamon stick
4 cups water
1 cup sugar

Take a big pot and put in your sugar and 1 cup of the water. Mix and leave the fire on medium heat. Keep mixing every few minutes and allow to cook for about 15 minutes or more until it starts looking like a clear caramel and is no longer watery but a bit thick in consistency.

Then you add in your bananas and your cinnamon stick.

Allow to cook for about an hour mixing every once in a while so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. You know that it is ready when it is no longer water and becomes sticky, looks and smells good. Then your done.

You can serve it either hot or cold. Eat it as it is or with ice cream, on top of cakes or however you choose. Be creative.
