Ripe Plantain Casserole

Pastel de Platano 1This recipe was inspired by mother-in-law’s sweet-potato casserole. I had some ripe plantains at home and I wanted to make something with an American twist and my mother-in-law makes a delicious sweet potato pie. So, I decided to create something similar, but with ripe plantains and coconut. Enjoy!



  • 3 very ripe plantains, unpeeled
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Topping
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup grated coconut
  • Pastel de platano


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Bake the bake plantains for about 25 minutes. Let them cool and peel.
  3. Mash the plantains and add the eggs, ground cinnamon, coconut milk, ½ cup melted butter and sugar.
  4. Pour into a casserole dish.
  5. In a medium bowl mix all the topping ingredients, until well combined. Sprinkle over the plantain mixture and bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve.

    Looks delicious!
    Have you had Torta de Plantano Zuliana?? It’s a great mixture of butter fried ripe platanos, white cheese, beaten eggs and cinnamon – layered lasagña style. Think you’d love it.

    This looks really great. Plantains are so much like potatoes that the texture would be similar. Our favorite is still plantain chips and just plain roasted plantains. Never have had a good recipe for that, though.

    Looks delicious! Our plantains are almost ripe and the coconuts are everywhere. Will have to give this a try. Thanks Erica!
