Super easy Jamaican banana fritters are light, fluffy and soooooo tasty. It is a cross between a donut and mini pancakes.

  • 3 super ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs whites separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • enough oil to shallow fry the fritters.
  1. In a large bowl smash the bananas along with the egg yolk. Add the spices and sugar, combine together. Add the flour and milk alternatively. When combined- whisk the egg whites. Slowly add in the egg whites careful as not to deflate the volume.
  2. Heat a large skillet or cast iron with oil up to about ½ inch on medium heat until hot but not smoking.
  3. Using a large spoon scoop up the batter and fry in batches. Do not over crowd the pan. Note: You will see the edge of the fritters start to turn a golden brown color. Turn only once.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, remove the fritters and place them on paper towels. Allow to sit for about a minute.
  5. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar. Serve warm with peanut butter or nutella.
