Recipe Notes

This week's recipe is so dear to my heart because it has always been one of my favorite meals.
I always looked forward to lunch on Fridays as a kid. Because I knew I was going to be eating either fried plantains or Kaklo with beans stew.

  1. Well, this is interesting! I have never heard about cakes like this. My bf would love them for sure, though I’m not sure where to find plantains. They are not very popular in Poland.

    1. Thanks Jere, yes plantains are the best. You can also cut them up add a little salt for taste and fry them.

  2. It’s my first time to hear about that plantains, but I like the idea of having spicy cake. I will start searching plantains and I hope I can get one.

    1. Hi Melve, what part of the world are you located. You can find plantain in almost any part of the world. Thanks for stopping!

  3. I love your food Fred, keep it up! I have a friend from the Dominican Republic who introduced me to plaintains, and I’m glad he did. They are delicious. Do you serve these with a sauce?
