Torta de Maduro (Ripe Plantain and Cheese Cake)

There are so many traditional Colombian dishes using plantains that I could write a cookbook containing only plantain recipes!

Fried ripe plantains (tajadas de maduro) are the most popular way to cook ripe plantains in Latin America, but if you like ripe plantains and want a dish that would show them off in a different way, this Torta de Plátano Maduro is perfect. For this recipe the plantains should be very ripe, which usually means the skin should be almost black.

    I’m nuts about fried plantains, but had a bad experience years ago when I bought some that were not quite ready to be eaten.
    This cake is just too easy. I cannot wait to try it. Thanks for the tip on how to choose the perfect plantain!

    Thank you for replying, Erica! Yes, I saw that recipe, but I prefer less sweet desserts sometimes, and I just wondered if this would work for that.
