Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour 
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar 
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 5 bananas 
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Powdered sugar
  • Mix the flour and sugar and then beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the milk 1/3 cup at a time and continue to beat the batter until it is smooth and elastic. 
  • Peel the bananas and chop them up into small pieces. With a fork, mass the bananas into a smooth puree. Stir the puree into the batter and let the mixture rest for about 30 minutes. 
  • Pour oil into a pan or a fryter about 2-3 inches. When the oil starts to bubble, you can now drop the banana better in. 
  • For each fritter, ladle about 1/4 of the batter into the hot oil. You can deep-fry 2-4 at a time depending on the size of your pan or fryer. Make sure that they spread into 3-4 inch rounds or oblongs. Turn them with a spoon until they are golden brown on all sides. When they are done, transfer them to a paper towel to drain. 
  • Let them cool and then sprinkle powdered sugar lightly on top. 
  • Tip: These taste really good with peanut butter.
