One of the most popular dessert in Mauritius, this banana tart is ideal for afternoon tea or served with cream as dessert. It is super easy to make and tasty too.

Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Slice the bananas and put in a saucepan. Add sugar and cinnamon stick. Leave to cook on low heat. Do not cover the saucepan as the mixture will have a tendency to rise and fall out from the saucepan. When done, add the butter, mix well and take off heat. Leave to cool.
