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.
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2⁄3 cup milk
- 2 bananas (peeled and diced)
- Mix and sift 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
- Moisten with 1 egg well beaten and diluted with 2/3 cup milk, beat thoroughly.
- Stir in 2 peeled and diced bananas, drop from spoon into deep hot fat and fry until brown.
- Drain on brown paper and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
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 :)
Enjoyable afternoon snack! My son and I finished off the two bananas I used. There was plenty of flour mixture to have made 2-3 times as many.
