Serving Suggestions


  • This is such a simple recipe and turns out delicious. It's also super- cheap, so when things are tight banana fritters will make you feel like royalty!
  • Don't forget to let the batter stand. It gives the baking powder time to do its thing.
  • Be careful when they come out of the fryer. The centres are very, very hot.
