Battered Banana Fritters Recipe

Ingredients:

For the batter

  • 180g YesYouCan Chocolate and Orange Zest Cake Mix
  • 150ml butter milk (or add 1/2 tbsp vinegar to 150ml milk at room temperature and set aside for 10 minutes)
  • 1 large egg
  • 20g corn flour
  • 10g polenta/fine rice flour (optional)
  • 6 medium sized ripe bananas

 

For the caramel

  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 80ml thickened cream
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2tbsp orange juice/zest of 1 orange

 

Method

  • In a big bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk till they combine into a smooth mixture.
  • Add all the dry ingredients to the mixture slowly in 3 parts to prevent formation of lumps and whisk to form a thick batter. The right consistency for this would be when the batter flows down slowly and continuously when poured from a height.
  • Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for an hour. This will help in getting a crispier outer coating while frying.
  • Once your batter is in the refrigerator, place a stainless-steel sauce pan on the stove with the sugar and water for the caramel. Make sure it’s at a very low heat since sugar burns very quickly. Stirring the sugar at this stage could lead to crystallization, therefore leaving it undisturbed is necessary.
  • Once the sugar turns dark golden brown, add the butter and salt while whisking continuously. This is also the right time to add the orange juice/zest.
  • Take the pan off the stove and immediately add the cream. Whisk till its combined and set aside.
  • Slice peeled bananas to the size that you desire. The best result comes out with smaller pieces so dividing a medium sized banana into 5 or 6 pieces is ideal.
  • Coat these in your batter and carefully drop them into hot oil without too much excess batter dripping from the bananas. Fry at a low heat and move them around constantly, ensuring the cocoa from the flour doesn't burn.
  • Take them out on a wire rack to drain the excess oil. Serve them fresh with orange caramel for the best result!
