How to make it

  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.
  • Baked plantain can be eaten plain or served over a bed of brown rice or white rice.
  • Peel the ripe plantains and cut in half and split lengthwise.
  • Place them in a covered baking dish with the rounded side up.
  • In a measuring cup, mix together the apple juice, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, and pour over the plantains in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 30 - 45 minutes, or in a microwave oven (on high) for about
  • 10 - 15 minutes. The reason for the covered baking dish is to help "steam" the plantains and prevent them from drying out.
  • Baste as necessary to prevent the top of the plantains from drying out and to help give them a nice color.
  • Serve plain or over a bed of brown or basmati rice and enjoy!
  • NOTE- If you are serving baked plantains over rice as a main dish, I suggest serving with a large salad or steamed veggies.

    Sounds good. I like to bake the ripe sweet plantain with just a drizzle of oil. I am going to try this and then tweak it witthout the molasses cause too much sweetness does not sit well with me.
