Banana Fritters

These were a favorite of mine as a child growing up. Bananas that were as tad too ripe were always turned into fritters or used to make banana nut bread. Banana fritters are great on their own, dusted with powdered sugar or like mini pancakes with a little butter jam or syrup. I have also enjoyed these with mango sorbet or ice cream.

  • 2 large ripe bananas (or 3 medium bananas)
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • A dash of grated nutmeg
  • Oil for frying

In a large bowl, mash peeled bananas with a fork

In a separate bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg

Add milk, eggs, and vanilla to the mashed bananas and mix

Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and combine

Heat oil in a frying pan (I used just enough to cover the pan and added more as needed)

Use a large spoon to scoop portions of the batter and drop into the hot oil 

Fry on each side until golden brown (about 2 minutes each side). Watch carefully and regulate heat as they can burn easily

Once cooked, remove from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain

Serve warm and enjoy!

I wonder how these would taste with coconut?
