Springrolls with Banana and Dulce de Leche

Our dear blogger friend from Cooksister is hosting this month’s Waiter there’s something in my soup and she chose Sweet & Savory swap as the theme for January.(The event is hosted in turn by Cooksister, Johanna and Andrew)
At first I thought that I would give this one a miss because I am extremely busy with catering jobs and did not have the energy to think too much about a recipe that would fit this theme. Well……day before yesterday, I found a roll of phyllo in the freezer and decided to make sweet spring rolls for my son who just about begged me for a sweet treat when he came back from school.

So today when I started uploading my photos, I saw these Springrolls and got a lightbulb moment! Ah-ha, I can enter these in the Waiter there’s something in my soup event! So here goes. There is not much of a recipe, because you can make as many as you like, but this is what you will need.


Springrolls with Banana and dulce de leche


phyllo pastry
melted butter
banana – cut into fingers
dulce de leche
icing sugar

Spread a sheet of melted butter and lay onto another sheet. Now cut the 2 sheets in 4 blocks. You will have 4 double layered blocks. Place a piece of banana and some dulce de leche on the block at the top. Fold in the sides and roll up like a spring roll. Deep fry until golden and bubbly and dust with icing sugar just before serving.

    Oh Nina. My daughter walked up and saw this picture and said, “Mom, why don’t you make ME that”? I guess I am going to need to try this recipe now. Looks mouth watering good.

    This is such an excellent idea Nina. You are very clever, and I would never thought of making banana spring roll. I haven’t submit mine to Jeanne yet. I think I still have time until Sunday?

    Wow, what an easy dessert, and a great combo – bananas and caramel. I have some phyllo dough in the fridge, some bananas and some caramel…..

    These sound so good! Nice and crispy on the outside and soft and warm and gooey and good on the inside.

    These look amazing and sound really good. I would be honored if you wanted to use my Posh Piggies at your next catering event. Thanks for asking, if you do please let me know how they turned out.

    Thats a wonderful idea. This months theme stumped me too. I need to try these.

    Nina I’m really liking the idea of bananas and phyllo!
    Your picture is amazing as always. I need that camera of yours!! But then again, if I had the most amazing camera in the world, as I’m not too good at all with presentation, it would be wasted on me!

    Perfect dessert. Just perfect!

  19. Jeanne 2 February 2009 at 1:47 am #

    Oh Nina, I was so hoping somebody would make dessert spring rolls for this theme! Hurrah! Yours look wonderful (although as a non-banana fan I’d probably find something to substitute for it πŸ˜‰ Can’t go wrong with phyllo pastry and dulce du leche, can you? Thanks so much for participating in WTSIM this month πŸ™‚

    We do banana spring rolls as Filipino desserts, but adding dulce de leche sounds like a great idea! πŸ™‚

    Nina, these remind me of cigars filled with Galiano cream cheese and chocolate…a sign that I should make some!

    I had never thought about spring roll with banana. I always cook it with chicken or egg. Your style is unique and different and its look delicious. Now, I will try to cook it.

  23. taste memory 4 February 2009 at 9:07 pm #
