I grew up eating plantains as a savory starch, but many cultures like them sweet. This recipe is from Guatamala.
4 very ripe plantains, black and even a little moldy is good!
1 tsp oil
4 Tbsp brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 450° F. Oil a baking dish.
Cut the ends off of your plantains and peel them. Cut each on the diagnonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange in a single layer in baking dish and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until the plantains are golden brown and very tender. Careful - they'll be very hot!
