Banana Fritters are on the menu today, a yummy treat for us!

Hi every one, we at Home cooking haven are so glad to welcome all you home cooking chefs to our kitchen.

We will start by giving you a basic batter recipe for bananas and other fruits.

You may use any fresh fruits or tinned fruit of your choice and turn into a culinary expedition of note for you and the whole family.

Ingredients for your Banana fritter

 So let's start by gathering all the goodies you will need for these delicious mouth watering fritters.

When I make fruit fitters, I usually make a little extra batter so I can make other flavoured fritters at the same time i.e. apples, mixed fruit ,onions, cheese.

I'll leave it up you to experiment using your creative imagination and expert cooking skills, as well as your knowledge of what your family will like most (and of course yourself).Just a small note if you decide to make;
Apples, they can be diced, mashed or cut in rings.

Bananas can also be mashed and added to your batter.

When using any tin fruit (use the juice from the tin for your batter).

Question: Guess which fruit I've chosen for today's fritters?

Answer:    Bananas!!

"Give that Man a Bells"  he he he..

  • 1 cup self raising flour.

  • 1 large egg.

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter.

  • ½ Cup fruit juice for your banana fritters. (½ a cup fresh milk for non-fruit fritters).

  • 60 gram brown sugar.

  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon.

  •  Pinch of salt. 

All veggies, cheeses and meats use milk in your basic batter mix.


Cinnamon and Sugar with Fritters

Okey  Dokey now that we have chosen the fruit we going to use to make our fritters today for today, let's  start "A" cooking.

  • In a mixing bowel, combine flour, baking powder and salt, stir to blend.

  • Add the egg and I table spoon of melted butter and blend.

  • Add fruit juice (or milk), mix until nice and smooth

  • Set to one side for 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Place a large frying pan on your hob, add your remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to your pan (you may use more if you feel the need to)

  • Mix sugar and cinnamon and set aside for later.

  • Peel and quarter bananas lengthways or crosswise as is your fancy.

  • Dip bananas in batter.

  •  Fry your fritters turning them until golden brown on all sides.

  • When cooked to golden brown remove from pan and place them on a kitchen paper towel to drain.

  • Sprinkle your cinnamon sugar over your banana fritters.


Yummy Honey with Banana Fritters

 Every time I make these mouth watering treats my house becomes haunted. The fritters seem to disappear into thin air, must be Casper the friendly ghost and his friends.

So what I do when I make fritters I get the family in and they must help themselves as soon as they are drained.
The only plating I do is set the table before hand with following goodies

  • Fresh cream.

  • Ice cream.

  • Honey.

  • Fresh sliced strawberries.

  • Jams of your choice (mine is Raspberry jam.)
  • Yogurt 

Looking at the smiles on my family's faces gives me such joy ..... everyone is happy.

Time for me to enjoy the fruits of my labour. I'm going to have mine with yogurt and sliced strawberries,  mmmm
