“Whether or not you live in New Orleans, Mardi Gras is a fine excuse to sample one the city's staples. These banana fritters - something of a cross between a doughnut and a pancake - are as good pan-fried like a traditional pancake as they are deep-fried as called for by the recipe.”
15-20 fritters

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, combine bananas, flour sugar, egg, salt and baking powder.
  2. Add enough of the milk to form a thick pancake batter. You may not need all of the milk. In a deep fryer, heat oil to 360°F Once the oil is hot, drop batter in by large spoonfuls, a few at a time, and fry until the fritters are golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to transfer fritters to paper towels to drain, then sprnkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Serve immediately.
