Nilupak na Saging

This kakanin reminds me of the food vendors that goes house to house to sell assorted kakanin (sweets) in a big basket in my hometown, Iloilo City. A recipe so easy to make and you only need 3 ingredients.

You will need:
12 pcs steamed/boiled saging na saba (previously frozen), cut into cubes
1 cup young grated coconut
1/3 cup brown sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
margarine or butter
steamed banana leaves

Whole Steamed Saba Bananas, 2 packs of 6 for $3.-
Product of the Philippines

Cooking Direction: Using a mixing bowl, combine banana, sugar and 1/3 cup of young coconut. Crush the mixture using a mortar and pestle (almiris). You don't want it too crushed so easy when crushing. Add the remaining young coconut to the mixture and stir one more time.

How to serve: Brush light the molder with margarine/butter. (I used the smallest tupperware I have for molding) Pack it up with the nilupak na saging. Arrange in a platter covered with steamed banana leaves and serve.
