Ingredients

1 c
sugar
2 tsp
cinnamon
1
loaf sourdough bread (8 inches long)
2
bananas, peeled
1 qt
canola oil, for frying

Step-By-Step

1Mix the sugar and cinnamon with a fork until thoroughly blended; set aside.
2Slice the bread into 4 2-inch thick slices.
3Cut each banana in half crosswise, then cut each piece lengthwise.
4Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle(do not tear all the way through)to stuff half a banana into it; repeat with each slice of bread.
5In a large pot or a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees; use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter, or it will burn.
6Gently place one bread slice into the oil for one minute, or until lightly browned.
7Turn and fry for another minute on the other side.
8Remove bread from the deep fryer and toss it in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Repeat for each piece.
