World Breakfasts: Banana Fritters

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya, Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama… That’s right; we’re sampling the delights of the Caribbean for this week’s world breakfast. Crisp and golden on the outside, with a light, satisfying centre, banana fritters are a hugely popular breakfast treat across the isles of the Caribbean Sea. They’re popular across Africa and Asia too, in various forms, but we’re sticking with a Caribbean recipe.

Banana fritters are really easy to make and a great alternative to banana bread. This recipe should take around 20 minutes to make and about two minutes to eat.

Have fun!

What you’ll need (Serves 2-4):

4 ripe bananas

140g self-raising flour

2tsp baking powder

2tbsp brown sugar

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp vanilla

½ tsp salt

Vegetable oil for frying

Icing sugar for dusting (optional)

What you’ll need to do:

1. Mash up the bananas in a medium-sized bowl using a spoon or fork.

2. Add the flour, baking powder, brown sugar and salt to the bowl and mix well until the ingredients are fully combined and the mixture resembles a thick batter. Add the cinnamon and vanilla and mix to incorporate. Set the mixture aside for 8-10 minutes.

3. Fill a deep saucepan with about 1-inch of oil and place over medium-high heat.

4. Carefully scoop heaped tablespoons of batter and place them in the frying pan. Fry for about 2 minutes until golden brown and flip to fry for a further 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Transfer the fritters to paper towels using a slotted spoon.

5. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with honey or maple syrup for dipping.
