Wonderful deep fried morsels of heaven! If you like them to be more of a bread texture, you can always add more flour..

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy bottomed pan to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash together the bananas and sugar. Gradually mix flour mixture into mashed bananas, stirring until well combined.
  4. Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil, and cook, turning once, until browned, 2 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Not a big hit at my house. They were a little bland and very greasy, even after blotting and blotting them. A dusting with some powdered sugar made them a little better, but no one was really crazy about them. Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

These didn't turn out very good at our house. Really greasy. I couldn't get the frying temps right either. They browned too fast and didn't cook inside or when I would reduce the temperature they would take longer and absorb all the more grease. We just didn't care for them.
