DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Combine the egg, milk and melted shortening; add the liquids to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • This will make a very stiff batter, but it will remain refreshingly crisp for some time after it's been cooked.
  • Cut each of the bananas into 3 chunks, dust with flour and coat with the fritter batter.
  • Fry in hot deep oil (375 F) until golden brown, turning often.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • To Make Brandy Sauce:
  • Measure the sugar, cornstarch and salt into a saucepan.
  • Gradually add the boiling water, stirring constantly.
  • Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes, or until clear and thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in butter, brandy and nutmeg.
  • Serve warm over banana fritters.
