Recipe by crazycookinmama

This is from an old Church Cookbook that was written in the 1940's. Absolutely delicious recipe. I'm going to list the directions exactly how they're listed in the book, I love it.

Not bad... but the batter mixture was way too thick, so I added a few more tablespoons of milk until I could at least stir it. I also put a bit of cinnamon in the batter, then deep fried these in olive oil. The end result was delicious, although the cooked batter around the bananas was very thick, more like a donut. Of course we liberally dusted powdered sugar on them :)
