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."

  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...

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

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.
