  • ¾ Cup plus 2 Tablespoons or 100g All Purpose Flour

  • 1 Banana

Directions For Making Banana Fritters

  1. In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add the water and oil and combine with a hand whisk. The consistency should be thick, like heavy cream and be able to coat a spoon. If it is too thick, add a drop more water, too thin, add a little more flour. Set aside.
  3. Heat a pan with vegetable oil until it reaches 180 C or 350 F. Make sure you do not over fill the pan with oil. I use a small saucepan and cook in batches, filling the pan ⅓rd deep with cooking oil.
  4. Whilst the oil is heating up. peel the banana, cut in half and then slice length ways in half so you have 4 pieces. Dip each piece in the batter so it is fully coated and carefully place in the pan, cooking both sides until golden brown. ** To tell if the oil is hot enough, drop a tiny bit of batter, the size of a pea in to the oil. If it sizzles and floats to the top immediately, the oil is hot enough.
  5. Place the fritters on some kitchen paper then dip into a bowl with sugar to coat.
  6. Serve immediately as they are or with some syrup drizzled over the top or a blob of ice cream!
