Here is a great breakfast to make on the weekend. A fritter is much like a Beignet. Make sure that you use clean, fresh oil when frying.
2 medium ripe Bananas, ripe but firm, peeled and coaarsely chopped
1 cup All-purpose Flour
1 large Egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
About 1/2 cup Milk
3 cups Vegetable Oil
Confectioner’s Sugar for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
Combine the bananas, flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl. Add enough milk to achieve the consistency of a thick pancake batter.
Heat the oil in a large deep pot or deep fryer to 360 degrees. Drop the batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry until the fritters rise to the surface of the oil and are golden brown, turning 2 or 3 times.
Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and cinnamon. Serve immediately.
