Directions

  1. Preheat the oil in a deep-fryer or large cast-iron skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Peel bananas, and slice them in half lengthwise, then crosswise into fourths. Place one piece of banana diagonally across the corner of a spring roll wrapper, and sprinkle with brown sugar to taste. Roll from the corner to the center, then fold top and bottom corners in, and continue rolling. Dip your finger in water and brush the last edge to seal. Repeat with remaining banana pieces.
  3. Fry a few banana rolls at a time in the hot oil until evenly browned. Remove to paper towels to drain. Serve hot or cold.

What a beautiful photo! What a simple idea. HOWEVER...I would like to title my review of the recipe... Hard Cooking Lessons Learned From The Making of Banana Spring Rolls. 1. No small children in the room during the making of this recipe. (Swearing is inevitable). 2. If you buy the crisp spring roll skins...you need to soak them before trying to wrap the banana. 3. Do not soak them all together. They will stick like a fly on the windshield. 4. Do not soak them too long. They turn into something that resembles somthing that nasty construction workers cough and spit out. 5. Wrap the bananas and seal well. Otherwise, when they hit the oil, out comes the banana, out comes the sugar. 6. Make sure you have everything ready and waiting in it's place. Burning bananas while you are trying to wrap just sucks! Have the paper towels, tongs, and whatever else ready! 7. Rolling these babies in cinnamon and sugar improves this dessert tremendously! 8. Most important tip. Do not bite into hot banana roll! 9. Make sure small children are still out of the room when you decide to ignore my advice and bite into that hot spring roll anyways. This tasted alright but I'm not sure it was worth the mess, swearing and aggravation that ensued.

OK, great variations already, and of course, I had to step it up for my own guilty pleasures! USE EGG ROLL WRAPPERS! USE PLANTAINS! Yummier! I used dark brown sugar on my plantains, then dusted them with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves before rolling. I let them cool BRIEFLY on a paper bag, didn't stick, then placed them on wire racks. Then I drizzled melted dark chocolate in a zig zag design over the tops of the rolls. Slice diagonally and serve with fresh tropical fruit and berries on a powdered sugar dusted platter. To die for, I swear!

Served it for guests and family and everyone loved it. My 9 yr old son helped me make them. We broke the bananas in half and rolled them in brown sugar-cinnamon mix. Then rolled the banana in the wrapper and sealed. We made them ahead and put them in plastic wrap in the fridge until it was time to serve dessert. It only takes a few seconds to fry them. I cut them in half after cooling a second. I sliced on a diagonal instead of straight across because then they look prettier on the plate when you stand them up. Served with a scoop of vanilla and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Put blueberries and cut up strawberries around the plate with a sprig of mint and the crowd went wild! We have already made them again! The whole thing went together very quickly! You can dress them up or eat plain, either way they are great!
