    1. 1
      In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter; add the brown sugar and cook, stirring constantly to dissolve, for about 1 minute.
    2. 2
      Add the pecans and continue to cook for 1 minute, then add the bananas and vanilla; now cook that for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Remove pan from the heat.
    4. 4
      In a large mixing bowl, combine the beaten eggs, milk and baking powder to make a batter; add the flour, 1/4 cup at the time, beating until it all is used and the batter is smooth.
    5. 5
      Now add the banana mixture to the batter and fold to mix.
    6. 6
      In a pot that is deep enough to safely deep-fry, heat the shortening to 360F; season with cane syrup and cinnamon.
    7. 7
      Drop the batter, a heaping tablespoon at a time, into the hot oil.
    8. 8
      When the beignets pop to the surface, roll them around with a slotted spoon in the oil to brown them evenly.
    9. 9
      Remove and drain on paper towels.
    10. 10
      Immediately sprinkle the beignets with icing sugar (powdered sugar) and make sure you serve the beignets warm.
