Servings 4 people


  • 2 - 3 large ripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon optional
  • 3 - 4 tbsp brown sugar Use less sugar if bananas are over-ripe
  • 1 ½ cups flour all-purpose
  • 1 cup water cool
  • ½ cup cooking oil for frying


  • Peel ripe bananas and place them in a medium-sized mixing bowl, then add sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  • Use a metal fork to mash bananas into pebble-sized pieces, simultaneously combining all the ingredients together.
  • Add the flour and fold ingredients completely before adding water.
  • Stir the mixture thoroughly until ingredients are combined and your batter is smooth but still slightly lumpy.
  • Heat a large frying pan then add oil.
  • Heat oil on medium-high temperature for approximately 1 - 2 minutes before adding the batter. (To test if your oil is ready, sprinkle a bit of flour in the oil after 1 minute. If bubbles form around your flour, it is ready).
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully spoon small dollops of batter into the pan, leaving space between each fritter.
  • Maintain medium-high heat and monitor fritters closely.
  • When the edges of your fritters begin to brown, flip over. Cook each side for about 2 – 3 minutes or keep flipping your fritters until golden brown on both sides.
  • Remove fritters from pan unto a large plate lined with thick paper towel.
  • Allow banana fritters to cool slightly to have it warm and scrumptious!
  • Bless up & enjoy it.
