    alligirl's Note:

    Taken from epicurious .com and posted for ZWT. "The fritter tradition harks back to West Africa, where frying in deep oil is one of the major cooking techniques. In the African Atlantic world, fritters can be served as appetizers, as a vegetable, and even as a dessert, as they are here."

      Delicious fritters alligirl. Light, tender, crisp and very flavorful. The warm banana just melts in your mouth. Perfect for breakfast with hot coffee, lunch or dessert. I garnished with the icing sugar for a memorable treat. Thanks for sharing another lovely recipe.
