Mom's recipe: this one appears to be a plain and simple batter with no frills into which banana slices are dipped and deep fried, probably in about an inch of oil in a cast iron skillet.

Mom did not like her food to be overly sweet and there is not even any sugar in the batter. All the sweetness comes from the bananas.

Any seasonings, even sugar, could be added to this basic batter -- and you could dip anything your heart desires into it for frying, it does not have to be strictly for bananas. I once watched a video of people deep frying Oreo cookies in a batter like this!!

How to Make Fritter Batter for Bananas

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix and sift the dry ingredients
  2. add milk gradually
  3. add beaten egg gradually
  4. using a fork, dip banana slices into batter and place in about an inch of hot oil in a cast iron skillet until browned on both sides
  5. Note: This batter could be used for bananas, zucchini slices, okra, or Oreo Cookies -- whatever you think might be tasty would probably be good!!
  6. You could also add a little sugar, vanilla, or cinnamon, or even cayenne pepper (whatever) to punch it up to your liking. Although I would probably not add sugar if I were doing vegetables, but that is just me. Also: if you add sugar you will need to be very careful with the cooking because the sugar will brown faster.
