The Perfect Winter Dessert

I believe the simple the things are, the better. And this sweet & decadent recipe explains it perfectly: tender tapioca pearls slowly cooked into coconut milk, topped with caramelized bananas pieces. What else can we ask to spend a cold winter evening ?
I just can't wait to make it again...

Serves 4:

500 ml coconut milk
2 tablespoon tapioca pearls
45 gr sugar powder + 2 tablespoon for banana caramel crust
1 banana
* Place the coconut milk, tapioca pearls and sugar (45gr) into a saucepan.
* Bring to the boil and reduce over low heat. Cook 20 to 30 minutes or until pearls are translucents, stirring constantly.
* Cut the banana into small pieces and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
* Spread some sugar generously and caramelize the top thanks to your gas burner.
N.B: to make the perfect caramelized crust, place your gas burner 5 cm to your banana pieces and make brush movements to get an homogeneous crust.

Serve warm.
