How I made
Plátanos maduros means sweet fried plantains in Spanish. It is one of the staple foods of Latin American cuisine. I love anything with plantains, whether it is made with raw, ripe or riper and always look out for new recipes to use them. Our shopping bag always contain plantains, usually buy in raw (green) form and allow them to ripe on the kitchen counter. Amma used to make after school snack with ripe plantains by adding to sweetened rice flakes.
Baked Sweet Plantains/Al horno maduro
- 2 no Plantains more ripe is good
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Sugar
- Canola oil for spraying
- Peel and remove the skin of plantains and cut the plantains into diagonal pieces and set aside. From one plantain I was able to get 10 pieces.
- Pre heat oven to 375 F.
- In a baking sheet lined with nonstick aluminum foil spray canola oil and place the plantains with cut side up. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the top.
- Bake the plantains for about 25 minutes or until the sides turned slight browned. Flip them after 15 minutes in between to get uniform caramelization.
- Enjoy with ice cream or cream cheese or as such.
