Homemade Banana Fritters
In my experience, it seems like banana fritters are not a huge thing in the United States. However, growing up in my household with a Kiwi mother promises otherwise. Oh homemade banana fritters, how can words do justice to your magnificence? Banana fritters are a special part of weekend breakfasts in my family. They are basically a banana and flour mixture that’s fried in oil on the stove top. We usually top them with powdered sugar. It’s so delicious. And better even still–they are incredibly simple to make! Let’s get to the recipe.
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- powdered sugar
- 2 bananas
- Sift flour and baking powder
- Mix with water to batter consistency (water amount could be different for everyone)
- Slice bananas and stir them into the batter
- Heat a pan with quarter of an inch of oil
- Take a large spoonful (see pictures) of fritter mix and plop into pan
- Cook until little bubbles start to appear in batter (roughly 3 minutes)
- Flip and do the same
- Take out of pan and put on paper towel
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar
I can usually only get through about two because they are very rich and quite rewarding. I’m sure many other Americans would love to play around with this recipe like put syrup or fruit on top. You should experiment! For me, it’s powdered sugar until the end. This is my mum’s recipe and I feel very lucky indeed to have it and also to be able to share it with you all! She’s been making it for who knows how many years, so it’s almost as easy as making a cup of tea for her. Enjoy this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
