Banana Fritters!

IMG_0813

I often buy bananas just to let them get over ripe.  I use them in banana bread, pancakes, muffins, and now….FRITTERS!  I found a recipe and modified it a bit.  It was heavenly, and so easy to make!  I made it for breakfast the other day and it was so delightful with a cup of coffee!

INGREDIENTS:

Banana, over ripe                       2

Coconut milk                            2 TBSP

Eggs                                                   2

Butter, melted                            1 TBSP

AP Flour                                      1 cup

Sugar                                           3 TBSP

Baking Powder                        1 tsp

Salt                                                  1/2 tsp

Cinnamon                                  1/2 tsp

Nutmeg                                         1/4 tsp

Coconut oil                                  1.5 quart for frying

Powdered sugar                         about 1/2 cup

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl.  Add milk, eggs and melted butter.
  2. In another bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Incorporate dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  4. IMG_0805In a small pot, add oil and heat to 375 degrees F.
  5. IMG_0807Drop dough by teaspoonfuls being careful not to crowd the pot.  Keep turning the fritters so that it browns evenly on each side.
  6. IMG_0809Test the fritter to see if it is fully cooked in the middle, about 4 minutes on each side.  If you find it is still doughy in the middle, add a minute or two.  When they are done, drain on paper towels.  Dust with powdered sugar!IMG_0812
