If you are not familiar with plantain bread (plantain cake), you are in for a treat. This bread is gluten-free, delicious, and is a perfect alternative to banana bread and a great way to use your ripe plantains.
Get the oven ready. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the batter: Cut the plantains in small pieces to make it easier to mash. Feel free to use a potato masher if needed. A fork or electric hand mixer will also work if the plantains are super soft. Mash the plantains. Next, add in the butter, eggs, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and vanilla extract one at a time while mixing to cream the ingredients together. Continue to combine to a smooth consistency.
Fold in the flour and sour cream; alternate between each fold. Bake the plantain bread / plantain cake: Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan or Bundt pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and enjoy for breakfast or with tea in the evening.
