Sauteed or baked bananas - "platanos manzanas"

Gualtier Malde | Apr 19, 2010 06:49 PM

Many years ago I spent a summer in pre-Castro Cuba. I was served bananas in many ways. There were little green ones which were cut into discs and fried, some were baked, and I believe some were sauteed. I was a kid then, not into cooking, but I do recall that the bananas used for the dish I am after were ripened to the point of being brown and I thought they were called "platanos manzanas" -

The over-ripe bananas were cut lengthwise and either baked or sauteed and I think some sweetness (honey) was added.

Can you help me find the recipe? Thanks
