DIRECTIONS

  • Place flour, egg, and about 1/2 the water in a bowl.
  • Mix with whisk for a few seconds, until the mix is smooth, and then whisk in the remaining water.
  • To cook the fritters, take a large nonstick skillet and heat 1/3 cup of the oil to 400F(200C).
  • Meanwhile, peel the bananas, and, holding them directly over the bowl containing the batter, cut them crosswise into 1/4" slices (let slices fall into batter).
  • Make 3-4 fritters at a time - using about 1/3 cup batter for each pouring it into the hot oil.
  • Spread mixture lightly as it hits the pan to create fritters about 3" in diameter.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes, turn, and cook for 3-4 minutes on other side, until lightly golden brown.
  • Remove fritters with slotted spoon and place them on wire rack to drain.
  • Continue to make fritters, adding oil as needed, until all batter has been used.
  • Sprinkle the drained fritters generously with sugar and serve as soon as possible.
