"My brothers and I used to eat this when we were younger. They're a lot like doughnuts but with the added fun of topping them with your favorite toppings. After a while of not having these, I started making them on my own for my family, and I enjoy them as much today as I did back then!"

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl until thoroughly mixed, and stir in the bananas, vanilla extract, and water to make a smooth, sticky dough.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). The oil should be deep enough to completely cover the panikekes while frying, or at last 3 inches deep.
  3. Scoop up a scant 1/4 cup of batter with a large spoon, and use another spoon to push it off into the oil. Fry in small batches of 4 or 5 until they float to the top and turn golden brown, about 3 minutes, then flip them to fry the other side. Remove from the fryer and let drain on paper towels.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Although very good plain, these panikekes go really well with jams, butter, Nutella, powdered sugar and even ice cream.

These are great! The first time I made them, I went exactly by the recipe, but I thought that they needed a little more banana flavor. I added a third banana in the second batch, and cut the wat...
