Turon is a Filipino snack made of thinly sliced bananas, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper and fried. Other fillings can also be used together with the banana, such as jackfruit, sweet potato, mango, cheddar cheese and coconut.


To serve as a dessert, Turon are delicious with two served side by side with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center.



  • 1 package lumpia wrappers
  • 5 medium bananas
  • 1 can or jar jackfruit, drained
  • 1/8 teaspoon brown sugar for each turon

Caramel Coating

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar


  1. Turon: Cut banana in half, and cut each half into 3 pieces.
  2. Place on top of lumpia wrapper and top with 2 or 3 thin strips of jackfruit (to cover length of banana).
  3. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of sugar over top of fruit.
  4. Roll into shape of eggroll and fry in canola oil until golden brown on each side. (Turon can be frozen and fried as desired.)
  5. Caramel Coating: Melt sugar in a heavy bottom saucepan set over medium heat. The sugar will begin to caramelize and brown. When the caramel is a golden amber color, remove from heat. Toss in turon and fully coat in caramel.
  6. Serve warm, or at room temperature.
