This candied plantain dessert is made with the same orange syrup. So if you make the syrup ahead, you can easily prepare this dessert on any special occasion without any fuss. You can also use banana instead of plantains to make the dessert. I got this recipe from a native cooking magazine some years back. That recipe used bananas to make the dessert.
