Banana Fritters

Posted on

I’ve experimented with various recipes to get the batter right for a light & crispy Banana Fritters and I think I’ve finally got it right this time 🙂

Mix 1 part self-raising flour + 2 parts plain flour with enough water to a ‘coating’ consistency …. add a pinch of salt if so desired …let stand for 10 minutes

Heat up a pan of oil enough for deep-frying until hot …. coat bananas in batter evenly and deep-fry until golden brown

Lift bananas out of pan of oil with a slotted spoon onto kitchen paper lined plate …. awesomely light & crispy Banana Fritters … lovely eaten as it is for a superb tea-time treat or serve it up with your Chicken Maryland meal as I did so 😉
