Platanos en Tentacion literally means "Temptation Style Plantains".  This is a side dish, not a dessert. It is delicious, especially accompanied by a rich white rice.


  • 3 very ripe plantains
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp dry white wine
  • 2 short cinnamon sticks
  • 1/8 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp butter


Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Butter a glass Pyrex dish, baking dish. Peel plantains, cut them in half and place them on greased baking dish. Sprinkle half the sugar over them. Add the dry wine and stick little pieces of the cinnamon sticks into the plantains.

Sprinkle with the rest of the sugar and the powdered cinnamon. Cut the butter in little pieces and put them over the plantains. Bake for about one hour.
