Banana Lumpia

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Simple, deep-fried banana dessert. I'm unsure of cooking time because I've never timed myself. I use frozen lumpia wrappers I find at my local Asian store. P.S. This is great with ice cream."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place brown sugar in a shallow bowl. Roll each banana quarter in the brown sugar until coated. Wrap a lumpia wrapper around each coated banana, sealing the last edge to the roll using a spoon or your finger dipped in water. Repeat with the remaining bananas and wrappers.
  3. Working in batches, fry lumpia in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked lumpia to a paper towel-lined plate using a slotted spoon. Some sugar may leak out the sides of the lumpia while cooling.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If your bananas are small you may not want to cut them crosswise and will probably need more of them.
  • Use a beaten egg in place of the water for sealing, if desired.

This is the same exact way I make my banana lumpia. Thanks for posting this recipe. Banana lumpia is a favorite here in Hawaii!

Followed recipe except added a sprinkle of cinnamon and drizzled a tiny bit of honey. Served hot with vanilla bean sorbet - delish! Great for company...

I made this recipe as written and it was great!! You have to buy the lumpia (spring roll) wrappers from an Asian store for this to work really well.

Great easy to follow recipe. I used apple bananas and cut in half since they are smaller than regular bananas. Made a bunch and put in the freezer. Perfect for potlucks
