      Good day! I'vebeen eyeing this the past few days and I'm glad I finally made it. I simply mixed all ingredients upping it a bit by adding also a 1/2 tsp of allspice, a tbsp of rum, 1/4 tsp jamaican seasoning. I had excess thinning batter at the end of frying the plantain/pineapple mixture, so I threw in a few cherries too. Instead of using all brown sugar, half was cane sugar, half was brown sugar. I tried to make a sauce with it with sugar and 2 coconut milk but wouldn't suggest it. So I just ate it as is. So delicious and sweet. Would be making this again. Made for zwt5.

      Thanks to Nif for introducing me to the new and exciting world of plantain! These fritters were fluffy, quick and best of all tasted lovely. I had to sub soy milk for the milk and egg replacer for the egg but the batter turned out fantastic! I will be using the batter in other dessert fritters for sure! Made for the Caribbean leg of ZWT5.

      I thought these were delicious. The flavorings were nice and different. I did add about a tbsp. of dark rum, for a bit of flavoring. These fried up quickly, and are best eaten warm. I made a 'sauce' of sour cream, lime juice and brown sugar; this was excellent drizzled on the fritters. I'll be making these again! Thanks for sharing, Nif. Made for ZWT 5.
