Try these delicious caramelized plantains, made with simple ingredients, ready in 15 minutes.
Servings: 5 pieces
a chopping board
- 1 Ripe plantain (yellow)
- 1/2 tbsp Ghee or butter
- 2 tbsp Brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp Apple sauce
Heat the frying pan on medium heat. Add the ghee or butter and the plantains. Fry them up, so they brown on all sides. (Approx 3 minutes)
Next, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and apple sauce. Keep mixing until you coat all the plantains with the sauce.
Add a little water and cover for a few minutes or until the sticky apple caramel sauce has thickened. (Approx 3 minutes)
Serve and Enjoy!
- Want it less sweet, reduce by half the brown sugar.
- Don't have ghee, add some butter and a mild flavor oil to fry the plantains in. We will add the oil so that the butter doesn't burn.
- Don't have apple sauce, you can just leave it out. The traditional recipe is just butter, cinnamon and sugar. I added the apple sauce to give it a flavor twist.
