Plantains Drizzled with Cream

  • Prep: 5 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min

  • Serving: 4

Make sure the plantains are ripe for more flavor and sweetness. Green plantains, like bananas, are firm and less sweet.


  • 2 ripe medium plantains, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or walnuts, or slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup fresh cream


  1. Slice the plantains on the bias and cut into 1/2-inch slices.
  2. Place the butter into a large sauté pan over medium heat. Once melted, add the plantains and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle the plantains with the sugar, and carefully stir the mixture so the sugar melts.
  4. Sprinkle in the vanilla, cinnamon and the nuts and stir to coat.
  5. Transfer the plantain mixture to a serving platter and drizzle with the fresh cream. Serve warm.
