Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters


"I was craving apple fritters but wasn't able to get to the donut shop. So I looked around to find on hand ingredients to satisfy my craving. I didn't have apples, but I had some very nice ripe bananas. That's when I came up with these. You won't be disappointed!"

  1. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in milk, eggs and margarine until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into banana mixture.
  2. Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy bottomed pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil, and cook, turning once, until browned, 2 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar.


  • Cook's Note:
  • These look kind of ugly at first, but taste delicious! I'll never go back to a donut shop for fritters again. (I tried leftover pineapple and grated apple fritters too; they were also good.)
  • Editor's Note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

I was looking for a recipe for banana fritters b/c my husband grew up on them. His family is Haitian and this is a traditional thing they make. I couldn't use his mother's recipe b/c her measu...

Great snack, easy to make. I used far less than 2 qts. of oil. They came out like banana fritter donut holes. My husband couldn't stop eating them. If you don't have ripe bananas on hand, pop th...

When I told my husband I was making banana fritters for dessert, he looked at me like I had two heads and said, "O.K. Whatever." After tasting a few he exclaimed, "These are fantastic!" They a...

These were great! I tried them first with bananas, then i substituted applesauce for the bananas and my family could not get enough of these! Will definately use this recipe alot! Thanks!!!

Very tasty...not too banana-y. One thing - the oil at 375F was too hot, start at 325F and work from there.

These are delicious! When I make these again, I'll probably try adding a bit more cinnamon and banana. I did as a previous reviewer suggested and placed the mixture into a ziploc bag and piped i...

i made these with overripe bananas and canned crushed pineapple...they were awesome! kids couldn't get enough!

It was fine and the texture was just right, but I used nowhere near 1 quart of oil and the banana flavor was barely detectable as Chevonne said. Based on that and other people's comments of blan...

This recipe was ok but I thought it was a little bland, even though I doubled the cinnamon. I might try it again by adding another half of a banana, more cinnamon and perhaps nutmeg. Good text...
