Banana Fritters

A delicious treat of bananas deep fried in a crunchy dough.


  • 9 oz firm bananas
  • 0.25 a lemon
  • 5 oz plain flour
  • 0.50 pint cold water
  • 3 oz unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tblsp cinnamon
  • 3 tblsp icing sugar
  • pinch of baking powder


  1. Peel and slice the bananas and cut into thick cubes and place in a bowl.
  2. Squeeze lemon juice over the bananas and cover with cling film.
  3. In a saucepan put water, cubed unsalted butter and cook on a medium heat until the butter has melted. Then bring mixture to the boil.
  4. Sieve flour and baking powder together and add all at once to the butter mixture.
  5. Stirring consistently until the mixture forms a ball of dough and there is no mixture left at the side of the saucepan.
  6. Transfer the dough to a large bowl and allow to cool slightly and then gradually add the eggs in slowly, beating well in between each addition until the mixture is smooth.
  7. Stir the bananas into the mixture.
  8. Heat oil to 180°C. Using an ice cream scoop add scoops of dough to the hot oil in batches.
  9. Do not over crowd the fryer as this will lower the temperature of the oil.
  10. Cook the fritters for 10 minutes, turning them from time to time to brown them evenly.
  11. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked fritters on to a tray lined with kitchen paper.
  12. While the fritters are still warm, roll them in cinnamon sugar.
