Banana Fritters

Noticing a pattern here ?

As you can see, I have yet to get my banana buying under control.

But you’ll be glad to have those ugly brown bananas around for this recipe. 

If you like bananas and donuts, you’ll love these!


Banana Fritters 013a



1- 2/3 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons confectioners sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup milk

1 egg

3 very ripe bananas, mashed

oil for deep frying

confectioners sugar


Banana Fritters 002a


Measure, sift and mix first 4 dry ingredients together.

Whisk together the milk and egg; add to dry ingredients.

Fold in the mashed bananas.

If too thick add a little milk, if batter seems too thin add flower.  Batter should have consistency to mound up in a spoon.

Banana Fritters 009a

Heat deep fryer to about 375 degrees or add one inch of oil to a deep skillet and use a deep fryer thermometer to check temperature.  When fritters take almost 5 minutes to cook, the oil is ready. (Check one first).

Drop by spoonfuls in small batches.  As fritters brown on one side, turn.  Keep turning until a deep golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.   Cool.  Just before serving sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or powder sugar.

OR, Serve warm with syrup, if desired.

Serves 10 to 15
