Unusual Fact: Despite being in the Caribbean, the currency of Guadeloupe is the Euro
Welcome to Guadeloupe! A small overseas region of France located in the Caribbean, renowned for it’s beautiful waters. One of the main products of Guadeloupe’s agricultural industry is the banana, so no wonder this week’s dish features this versatile fruit.
These cinnamon fried bananas are so simple yet so delicious. All it takes is a little cinnamon and sugar mixed together, fry the bananas in the mix and serve with ice cream! I particularly love it when you cook it for a little longer than you think you should; the bananas go crispy on the outside while still soft in the centre and the sugar mix caramelises a little so it sets hards once cooled which adds another texture dimension.
