Banana Fritters
13th November, 2018

I remember first eating Banana Fritters as a kid growing up in the States and they quickly became one of my favourite puddings to eat when we went out for lunch and dinner

I prefer them without a dipping sauce but you can always make a quick chocolate dip or use other fruit to make a little puree


  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 150ml milk
  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 bananas
  • To decorate:
  • 1 Tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


    Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a bowl and make a well in the centre

    In a measuring jug, beat the egg and then add the milk and mix together. Add in the vanilla essence and then gradually pour into the bowl with dry ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter. You can let this batter sit in the fridge now until you’re ready to start serving

    When ready, peel the bananas and cut in half lengthwise and then cut each piece into three horizontally

    Heat some vegetable oil in a deep saucepan. If you put a small piece of bread into the oil; it'll go brown within a minute and this show the oil is ready

    Dip your banana pieces in the batter and let the excess drip off. Carefully lower the battered banana into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes until the batter is golden brown

    You'll have to do this in batches so place the cooked fritters on a paper towel to soak up excess oil

    Using a sieve, dust the fritters in icing sugar and cinnamon and serve with some good vanilla ice cream
