Quick and easy

“Banana fritter is a Mauritian snack known as gateau banane.”

This easy banana fritter recipe is light and golden, with a crisp coating surrounds chunks of warm banana. Delicious trickled with honey or maple syrup. These sweet treats only takes 25 mins to rustle up and are a favourite treat for the kids, especially served with a scoop of ice cream. Ground cinnamon and a sweet drizzle of honey makes these treats irresistible.

You will need:

4-6 ripe bananas
200g self raising flour
120ml milk
50g caster sugar
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Drizzle vegetable oil

Using a big bowl, add the ripe bananas. Using the back of a fork, gently mash the banana pieces but also making sure it still has some lumps. Sieve the flour, add the salt, vanilla extract, egg, sugar, baking powder and milk. Mix everything together and taste if it needs more sugar. If the consistency is too runny, add a little more flour. If the consistency is too hard, add milk to smooth the batter. On medium to high heat, drizzle some oil onto a pan and spoon some batter. Fry it till it becomes golden brown in colour. “Gateau banane” is always best eaten warm either by itself or served with ice cream.
