Banana Fritters


I love, love, love baking and cooking with bananas. I tend to have plenty of them (both bananas AND recipes that use them) around, as a quick search for "banana" on this blog would reveal... (in my opinion, there are never too many varieties of banana bread!)

When I saw this recipe, I knew I would want to try it. I managed to eat these for dinner one night, but they would also make a delicious dessert (and would be a more healthy option if these, covered in syrup, were the final ending to a salad dinner!).

In a large bowl, mash the bananas and blend in the eggs.


Stir in the flour.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Drop spoonfuls (2 to 3 inches in diameter) of the batter into the hot oil.


Reduce the heat to medium. When bubbles begin to appear, turn and cook the other side until golden brown.


Repeat the process until all the batter is used up, keeping the cooked fritters in a warm oven. Serve them with maple syrup or honey.
