Some easy Filipino dessert recipes include mango float, buchi and turon saba. To make turon saba, cut six ripe plantain bananas in half lengthwise, and cut each half into three pieces. Place each piece along with chopped jackfruit on a separate lumpia or spring roll wrapper, and roll them up, making sure to seal the wrapper closed with a dab of water. Sprinkle each turon with 1/8 teaspoon of brown sugar, and fry them until they're golden brown.Continue Reading
Another easy recipe, mango float, requires only graham crackers, nestle cream, condensed milk, evaporated milk and mangoes. Start by beating two cans of Nestle cream and adding in one can each of condensed milk and evaporated milk. Spoon 1/4 of the cream mixture into the bottom of a baking dish, and top it with 1/4 of a box of graham cracker crumbs and 2 sliced mangoes. Repeat the cream and graham cracker layers four times and the mango layer three times, ending with the graham cracker crumbs. Chill the dessert overnight before serving.
To make buchi, soak 1 cup of uncooked rice in water until it swells, and grind it into a paste. While it drains in a cheesecloth or colander, boil 1/2 of mango until it softens, and mash it. Bring 2 tablespoons of water to boil, and mix 1/3 cup of sugar into it until the sugar dissolves, and then add the mango. Once the mango dries out, form it into balls. Repeat the same process with the ground rice, also forming balls, and then flatten the rice ball, and wrap it around a mango ball. Roll the balls in sesame seeds, and fry them at medium-high heat.Learn more about Desserts
