Step 1: Tools & Ingredients
3 or more extremely ripe plantains - they should be black and soft!
1/3 - 1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 - 1/2 cup Kahlua, spiced rum, or your favorite flavored alcohol
2 - 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
sprinkle of salt
sprinkle of allspice (or your favorite spice)
sharp knife and cutting board
8x11 baking dish
oven pre-heated to 350F
Step 2: Prep plantains
Slice the plantain lengthwise, and place in your baking dish. Repeat as needed to fill the baking dish.
If youmis-estimate the number of plantains you can fit in a pan, just grab another small oven-safe dish and use it as an excuse to try another flavor combination!
Step 3: Add liquids & spice
(I find the cooked-down creamy pan juices the best part, so tend to err on the side of using more than absolutely necessary.)
Sprinkle top with allspice and a pinch of salt.
Step 4: Bake
Remove from the oven, and sprinkle top of each slice with brown sugar.
Return to the oven for another 5-10 minutes, long enough for the brown sugar to melt into the rest of the creamy goo.
