I was craving apple fritters but wasn't able to get to the donut shop. So I looked around to find on hand ingredients to satisfy my craving. I didn't have apples, but I had some very nice ripe bananas. That's when I came up with these. You won't be disappointed!

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

  • 1 quart oil for frying

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in milk, eggs and margarine until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into banana mixture.

  2. Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy bottomed pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil, and cook, turning once, until browned, 2 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar.

Cook's Note:

These look kind of ugly at first, but taste delicious! I'll never go back to a donut shop for fritters again. (I tried leftover pineapple and grated apple fritters too; they were also good.)

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
