Banana fritters

Banana fritters

Transform ripe bananas into a warm, battered dessert with our recipe for easy fritters.

Ground cinnamon and a generous drizzle of honey make these sweet banana fritters irresistible. Each chunk of warm banana is covered in a crisp, golden coating made with flour, egg, and milk. These delicious banana fritters are best served warm with ice cream. Swap the honey for a drizzle of maple syrup, or melted chocolate to serve instead. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to two days.

When deep frying choose a pan that’s larger than the burner you are cooking on and don’t fill more than half full of oil. If you have a thermometer heat the oil to 180°C, otherwise place a cube of bread in the oil and if it turns golden brown in 45 secs the oil is ready.


  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 bananas
  • Clear honey to serve


  • Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and cinnamon into a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the egg and half the milk and mix well to a smooth batter. Gradually beat in the remaining milk.
  • Heat some vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or wok.
  • Peel the bananas and cut in half lengthwise and then cut each piece into three horizontally.
  • Dip the banana pieces in the batter and then gently lower into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Cook a few pieces at a time then remove and drain on kitchen paper. Serve with honey for dipping. Please note nutritional info is based on the use of 100ml of vegetable oil for cooking.
