Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters are great for breakfast. It’s not your typical pancake. It really isn’t a pancake at all. Once you have a taste of these, you’ll never look at over ripened bananas the same again.

Get ready to wow your family with this recipe from the Virgin Islands.

Ingredients:
3 mashed bananas
¾ milk
1 tbs. vanilla essence
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. salt
1½ cups flour
½ tbs. baking powder
½ cup sugar
2 egg
Oil for frying

DIRECTIONS:
Peel and mash bananas. Combine the mashed bananas, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl. Add the other ingredients to make the batter. Stir well for several minutes. Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, spoon the batter into the oil. These are better in small rounds rather than large pancake sized rounds. Brown well on both sides. Drain on paper towel.


The darker the banana skin, the sweeter the banana. Remember to adjust your sweetness as you see fit.

These can be eaten with or without sprinkled sugar on them. I love them plain and fresh out of the pot. They never last long enough to get to room temp in my house.
