Platanos En Tentacion
I had some plantains that were ripening but were taking forever to get to the good stage of over ripe/almost rotten to fry them as platanitos maduros, so I decided to bake a couple of them as Platanos en Tentacion - for those of you not familiar with the term, it translates to Temptation Plantains.
My mother used to make this in Cuba but she used brown sugar, butter and 'drinking' sherry (as opposed to cooking sherry)
I didn't have sherry but I did have apple juice, so decided to go with that.... The syrup not eaten was saved and we ate it over French Toast the next morning (after reheating)...it was delicious!
