Strawberry-Banana Fritters


My grandmother made these crispy, fruity treats with apples, and my mother with sweet corn. When I didn't have either on hand, I substituted bananas and strawberries. Serve dusted with confectioners' sugar.

15 medium fritters


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 bananas, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped strawberries

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil for frying


  1. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.

  2. Whisk eggs and confectioners' sugar together in a large bowl. Add milk, 1 teaspoon oil, and vanilla extract; mix well to combine. Add flour mixture; stir until just combined. Gently fold bananas and strawberries into batter.

  3. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Scoop 1/4 cup batter at a time into the oil and fry fritters, in batches, until light golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Cook's Note:

For a healthier alternative, pan-fry fritters without oil in a nonstick skillet.

Editor's Note:

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