Ingredients

4 ripe bananas, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup cornflour (cornstarch)

vegetable oil for deep frying

icing sugar, to serve

vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)

 

Batter:

250g (8.8 oz) plain flour (all-purpose flour), place in the freezer 15 minutes before using

1½ tsp baking powder

1 egg

325ml (11 oz) cold soda water

Instructions

STEP 1
Fill a saucepan or wok to about 1/3 capacity with vegetable oil. Heat over high heat. The oil is hot enough to cook the banana fritters when it reaches 325°F or 165°C or when a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles.

 

STEP 2
Make the batter just before you’re ready to cook so that it is cold when it hits the hot oil. Combine the plain flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the egg and soda water and whisk until smooth.

 

STEP 3
Place the cornflour in a large tray or shallow bowl. Dip each piece of banana into the cornflour and then into the batter and then carefully slide into the hot oil. Repeat with another 3-4 pieces (don’t overcrowd your pan). Cook the fritters, turning them every so often, until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towel. Repeat with the remaining pieces of banana.

 

STEP 4
To serve, dust with icing sugar and serve with ice cream if using.
