Sweet Banana Fritters

Our forecast for the day calls for heavy afternoon thunderstorms. Think we'll hunker down today and make a few banana fritters.

Recipe from this nice lady.   

If you like fritters, you will love these banana fritters. It seems I am always looking for recipes using bananas and this is a favorite at my house.  We like them for breakfast or just anytime.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 bananas, mashed
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
1/4 cup milk
1 cup oil
Confectionery sugar
Whisk together the dry ingredients in a bowl. (Flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar, and salt) Add eggs, butter, vanilla, milk and bananas and mix well with a spoon.  Heat the oil in a skillet. Drop mixture into hot oil   (I use an ice cream scoop full for each fritter).  Brown on both sides.  Remove and drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with confectionery sugar.  (You can use syrup or any topping you like). Makes about a dozen fritters. Enjoy!


  1. I could eat a basket full of those. Look damn good.

    1. Thanks, John. I know I'd be able to eat half a bushel.

  2. mmmmm, yeah those sound like winners.

  3. I find out tomorrow. My plans took a left turn today...but soon, very soon.

  4. Oh, this sounds so yummy!! I'm gonna have to try them. Hope you are doing well and not over-exerting.

    1. Thanks, sweet lady. I'm steaming full bore (with a limp) and seem to gain more strength each day. I plan to make the fritters tomorrow, as again, they call for a rainy day with cool temps afterwards.
