This dish was taught in a Cuban Cooking Class in August 2014. It's a simple, yet delicious, snack or dessert!  Make sure the plantains you use are ripe, which means they should have a very black skin.

Cook Time

10 Servings


3 plantain (ripe, peeled and cut into 1" slices)
2⁄3 cup vegetable oil
1⁄2 cup sugar


Lightly roll the plantains in white or brown sugar before frying. Fry the pieces briefly, about a minute each side.  Reduce heat to low and continue cooking, turning until they are brown and caramelized.
