Plantains are "cooking bananas" popular in tropical areas of Latin America. Traditionally served as a side dish with black beans, this recipe can also be used as a dessert with an exotic flair. A dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream lends a deliciously sour counterpoint to the sweetness of the sugared plantains. The caramelized sugar is sticky, so be sure to pat dry, not drain, with paper towels.
