The recipe didn't work for me unfortunately. As soon as I dropped the plantains into my "bubbling caldron" the sugar was left sitting on top of the oil, while the plantain sat at the bottom. My friend told me to then do it with cracked corn flakes (which also didn't work). We eventually poured the oil out on the snow and threw out the plantains we had left.What did I do wrong? E-mail me at email@example.com with a solution, these look great!

Sorry for the super late reply, Joel! If this happens, you should try dumping the sugar (and lots of it!) directly into the frying oil with the bananas, instead of rolling the bananas into the sugar then dropping it in the oil. That's the likely culprit. Hope it works! Oooh, and I would hate to see wasted plantains!
