Recipe


Ingredients

  • 6 very ripe bananas
  • 60g plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 60g fine cornmeal
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ cup lukewarm milk
  • 6g baker’s yeast
  • Oil for deep-frying

Method


  • Peel and cut the bananas into pieces. Place them in a bowl and mash using a fork or rolling pin.
  • Add the flour, cornmeal and salt and mix until combined.
  • Mix the warmed milk and yeast in a bowl. Mix the yeast mixture into the banana mixture. Cover the bowl and leave the dough to ferment in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • Knock down the dough to remove the gas formed by the yeast.
  • In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 170–180°C. Using a spoon, make balls of dough and drop them into the hot oil. Cook until golden all over. Drain the fritters on paper towel.
  • Serve the fritters hot, dusted with icing sugar or drizzled with melted chocolate.
  • TIP: t’s important to maintain the oil between 170°C and 180°C so the fritters don’t absorb too much oil. If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a deep heavy-based pot instead.
