I’ve decided to start documenting some of my cooking adventures. Recipe number one: FRIED BANANAS
  • 1 ripe but firm banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon of white sugar (optional)
  • 1-2 ounces of water
  • 150-200 mL flour
  • oil for frying
  • 2 paper towel sheets (to soak excess oil)
  1. Cut the bananas into circles.
  2. Mix the egg, sugar and salt together. Then slowly add the flour while stirring the other products. Mixture will become very sticky like cake batter. If the batter becomes difficult to work with, add a little bit of water as you see fit. 
  3. In a frying pan add about 2 cm oil and wait until it gets warm. Carefully roll each banana circle in the mixture and put into the oil until it becomes “golden”. Then turn the banana to fry the other side. Takes approximately 30-60 seconds depending on electric or gas stove. 
  4. Place finished product on paper towels to soak excess oil and enjoy 🙂
It’s a simple and quick recipe and I know I always enjoy it when I’m in the mood for something sweet and crunchy. I always like to try and find a creative way of presenting the food such as color coordination, placement and of course, adding different flavors. If this is something that you like, I would like to suggest cutting the banana into quarters rather than circles and continue with the steps above. After I finish frying the bananas, I like to “glue” the banana quarters back together some fresh whip cream (you can also use the instant whip cream from the store). I like to garnish with some fresh fruit such as, strawberry halves, blueberries, and slices of kiwi. To top everything off, adding some shredded dark chocolate and almond flakes is great for taste and presentation.
