Cook Time:

These are absolutely amazing! I have to make them in small batches because I can not stop eating. They are great for a dessert or to use as a party for a finger food. I will be serving them at my party this coming Friday night, and I am certain they will be a hit.


6 large
cooking bananas (4 lengthwise slices each)
1 pkg
spring roll/eggroll wrappers
1 c
brown sugar, light
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
32 oz
salad oil (for deep frying)

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel and slice each banana into 4 lengthwise stripes. Place them on a plate. Open and separate the wrappers and set aside.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon on a separate platter. Next, coat the banana on each side with the sugar mix. Then wrap each coated banana like a burrito. Set aside. (repeat for the rest of your sliced bananas)
Heat about 3cups of oil on a medium sauce pan or in a deep fryer. Then reduce the heat to medium low. Drop in 3 or 4 into the hot oil until the wrap turn golden brown on each side.
Using a thong, carefully pick up the banana from the pan and place them on a lined paper towel platter. Let cool and serve.

It's a great recipe also brought it back from the Philippines. Over in Angels City they always put on Powdered Sugar after they were cooked and that's really good too.

Sherry, in places like Saipan and Guam, bananas are referred to as being either cooking bananas or eating bananas. The eating bananas are rather small and sweet. The cooking bananas are larger and are usually used while they are very green. The cooking bananas are used pretty much like you would use potatoes.

Sounds great! But what are "cooking bananas?" I've never heard it put that way.
