"A sweet and simple sauce for dipping, from Pinch of Yum - a Filipino cooking blog. It takes a while to cook down, and for this reason I would probably double the recipe in order to use the whole can of coconut milk. This is excellent for dipping Turon (Banana Lumpia), or try it with vanilla ice cream and sliced bananas. Or just with a spoon in the middle of the night..."

Step 1

Pour the coconut milk into a heavy-bottomed saucepan and place over low heat. Heat until bubbling slightly, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the brown sugar and stir until smooth.

Step 3

Cook the sauce to desired consistency by keeping it at a low boil and stirring very frequently. This might take up to 30 minutes. It thickens slightly as it cools, but you should be able to see it thickening in the pan as well.

This is delicious. I served it over slices of angel food cake and topped with toasted coconut.
