  • 1 1/4 cup sifted all purpose flour divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk plus 3 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp melted butter
  • 2 firm bananas peeled and cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for garnish


  • Sift one cup of flour with baking powder, salt and granulated sugar.
  • Combine egg, milk and melted butter until smooth then add to dry ingredients and mix until batter is smooth yet stiff.
  • Roll banana pieces in remaining ¼ cup of flour then shake off (the extra flour helps to create an adhesive before dipping into the batter); dip into fritter batter, completely coating pieces with batter.
  • Fry in oil at 375 degrees until golden brown, turning fritters to brown evenly on all sides; drain on paper towels; sprinkle when hot with powdered sugar and serve with caramel sauce if you so desire!!
