Jamaican Banana Fritters
3 ripe bananas
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 cup of sugar
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4-1/2 cup milk
Peel and mash the ripe bananas.
Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Next, blend egg mixture with mashed bananas. Make sure it is all incorporated.
Then sift flour and baking powder into the banana/egg mixture. Mix it all together.
If the batter seems to be too thick add a little milk… I added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk.
Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the banana fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden.
Lastly, combine cinnamon and sugar together to create your cinnamon sugar. This is used to sprinkle on top of the fritters once they are finished cooking and still hot.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
