  • Yield:serves 4
  • Active time: 5 minutes
  • Total time:30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe plantains (skins should be completely black)
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche or clotted cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. 1.

    Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Peel plantains and slit lengthwise, being careful not to cut all the way through. Use your fingers to open up the slit like a hot dog bun. Spread crème fraîche evenly inside the slits. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Place on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake until fully tender and sugar has started to caramelize, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve.
