    Felix4067's Note:

    I got this from the Louie's Backyard cookbook, but being me I halved it and tweaked it and now it's almost like my own. They get all the credit for the base recipe, though, since I would never have thought to make them if I hadn't bought them accidentally. One thing I really do need them to be almost completely black to get the full flavour. I did some that were mostly yellow and they just weren't as good.

      This were very delicious! I love this unique take on ripe plantains. Next time may use less flour but there will definitely be a next time. Thanks Felix!
