Jamaican Banana Fritters (Eggless)

July 3, 2014

Banana fritters are simple food, the best part of making these is that you can used overripe bananas which otherwise no one would like to eat. Authentic Jamaican banana fritters are dense not fluffy. Let me assure you that they taste so good. They are so easy to make that it requires just minutes to prepare the batter.

3/4 Cup mashed overripe Bananas (about 3 medium bananas)
2 -3 Tablespoon granulated Sugar / Brown Sugar
A pinch Nutmeg
A pinch Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla extract (Optional)
A pinch of Salt
1 Cup All-purpose Flour
1-2 Tablespoon Oil ( I used Ghee)

Mash bananas with sugar and spices; stir flour into banana mixture. If necessary add some milk or water to make a thick batter.

Heat 1 or 2 Tbsp cooking oil and, using a spoon, spoon batter into pan

Fry fritters until crisp and brown on both sides; you may have to add more cooking oil. When you press them if no batter oozes out they’re done.

Remove fritters from pan and place on paper towel. Eat warm. The taste of the cinnamon in these fritters makes it different and gives a awesome taste to it.

Do try them and give your comments.

Note:  You can add an egg but the texture will be like a pancake.For a healthy version you can use wheat flour.

  1. Yummy! Tried these this morning and they were delicious! Swapped the all purpose flour for buckwheat and we're still great! Ate them with a spread of honey and with a hot cup of tea. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe x
