Banana Fritters.. Whoa Baby!

They may not be pretty.. but Damn are they good!!

Inspired by a corn Fritters post by adaptations that was lucky enough to make it's way to FoodGawker the other day I instantly got a craving for fritters.. Banana fritters though, not the corn variety (that will come later on this week, lol) I set my sights about Recipezaar to find a recipe that was going to yield the crunchy on the outside, smooth on the inside results I was looking for, and man on man did I find the most perfect recipe!

Banana Fritters (Care of Evie @RecipeZaar)

  • 8 bananas
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/3 cup cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • oil (for deep frying)


  1. Peel bananas and cut in half.
  2. Sift flour, cornflour, baking powder and salt into bowl.
  3. Mix to smooth batter with the milk.
  4. Beat egg white until soft peaks form, fold lightly into batter.
  5. Drop banana pieces into batter, then deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
  6. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
  7. Toss in sugar.
(frying time is approx) Serve hot with ice cream or whipped cream.

I only had Chocolate (Moose tracks to be exact, lol) ice cream in the freezer.. OMG it was so good with the Fritters... YUMMY!!
