I just recently made these, I just had to post the recipe they are so good!
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 -3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2⁄3 cup half-and-half cream (or milk)
- 1 egg
- 3 bananas, mashed (sprinkled with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to keep from discolouring)
- oil (for deep frying)
- confectioners' sugar
- In a bowl sift all dry ingredients.
- Whisk together the half and half and egg until well blended; add to the dry ingredients.
- Fold in the mashed bananas, mixed with the lemon juice,if the mixture is to thick add in a little milk, or if it is too thin add in some flour, it should be the consistancy to mound on a spoon.
- Heat a fry pan to 370 degrees with 1 inch of oil (when fritters cook in 5 minutes, you know the oil if ready).
- Drop by spoonfuls in small batches.
- As it browns on one side, then turn and brown.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Keep warm, just before serving sprinkle with powdered suger.
- Serve warm.
Maybe I did something wrong, but these ended up more like crispy banana pancakes. Plus, they absorb so much of the oil when they cook, the last few ended up cooking in the pan without any oil at all, making them even more pancake-like. They were still good, just not exactly what I was looking for.
These little treats are addicting. I wanted to use up some bananas and didn't feel like waiting on banana bread. I had some problems trying to evenly fry them. I couldn't find a thermometer so some of my fritters were almost burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. The powdered sugar was just enough sweetness. My fiance said these would be a 10 star recipe if I added raisins to them. (Definitely will next time.) I do think that they were better the next day. Thanks so much.
I didn't care for these at all, and my guess is that I must not like cooked bananas. For this reason, I didn't rate them.
