Don’t believe us? Watch the short recipe video above and get cooking with the ingredients and steps below:
- 4 Bananas (1 needs to be ripe)
- Cooking Oil (To deep fry)
- 1/2 cup of Sugar Powder
- 1/2 tbsp. of Ground Cinnamon
- 1 medium Egg
- 1-2 Oz of Margarine
- 1/3 cup of Milk (Any type)
- 12 Oz of All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- With the ripest banana, break it into pieces, and mash until a pulp in a bowl.
- In the same bowl, mix the egg, 1/3 cup of sugar powder, margarine, milk, flour, mashed banana, baking soda, and salt.
- Mix until combined and dough-like.
- Once combined, dust a surface with flour, and put the dough on top. Then dust the dough with flour.
- Roll out the dough so that it is roughly 1 cm thick (less than half of an inch).
- Using a dough cutter, cut the dough into round shapes big enough to fold over the banana chunks made in step 2.
- Cut the 3 remaining bananas into inch-long pieces.
- On top of each round shape, add one banana piece, and fold. Sealing the ends around the banana.
- Once sealed, gently roll the dough into a ball.
- Add cooking oil to a pan, or deep fryer. The oil needs to be high enough to cover the dough.
- Preheat the oil over medium-high heat, and once hot, add the dough balls.
- Cook each dough ball until evenly golden brown. This may take anywhere between 3 and 7 minutes.
- Once golden brown, remove from the oil and leave to drain on paper towels for 5 minutes.
- Add the banana fritters to a plate, dust with the remaining sugar (to taste), and serve while still warm.
