Ingredients
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 very ripe plantains, peeled and sliced on the diagonal into 1/3-inch rounds
  • 8 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • Chopped walnuts, for garnish
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving, optional
Directions

In a large skillet, melt the butter and cook the plantain slices until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Add the sugar and cinnamon to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the sugar is melted and bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the rum, stir to combine, and cook until the sauce is thick and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve the plantains in small bowls with the hot sauce drizzled over all. Garnish with the toasted walnuts and serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
