Baked Sweet Plantains ~ Platano Maduro Horneado

John has really enjoyed "platano maduro" and the many ways it can be served. This simple recipe has become one of his favorites for dessert.

2 ripe plantains (platano maduro) Note: The skin will be almost black.
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar or Splenda (you can also use brown sugar)
2 ounces rum
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 375.
Peel plantains and slice them in half, lengthwise. Then cut each slice in half. Place the 8 sections in a baking dish. Cut the butter and layer it on top of the plantains. Sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon. Drizzle the water and rum over everything. Cover and bake 15 minutes. Turn the plantains over, spoon the liquid over them and bake another 15 minutes. They plantains are done when they are slightly browned from the caramelized sugar and they are soft all the way through. The liquid will turn to syrup.

Serve warm with the syrup drizzled on top.

Servings: 4
