Recipe Notes

These baked plantains are best served warm. However, you could keep them in an air-tight bowl then heat up covered with paper towel for about 30 seconds to 1 minute in the microwave before serving them. Avoiding overheating the plantains in the microwave because they could get tough (around 1 minute is okay).
