Coconut Banana Fritter.

  • Clean peanut or canola oil for frying
  • 1 cup chopped ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut (or up to 1/2 cup, if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar, for serving
Directions (Using the Whirlpool Induction Hob):
  1. Fill a Dutch oven or cast iron (Induction Pan) pot with a few inches of peanut or canola oil and heat on medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the bananas, flour, cornstarch, coconut, sugar, baking powder and salt, followed by the egg yolks, milk and vanilla.
  3. Combine the mixture using a potato masher until it becomes a thick yet viscous batter, adding more milk — tablespoon by tablespoon — as necessary.
  4. Using a springform ice cream scoop to form the fritters, carefully lower 4 to 5 dollops of batter into the hot oil – one at a time.
  5. Cook for approximately 2 to 3 minutes, flipping once, until the fritters are golden-brown.
  6. Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon or spider, shaking off excess oil back into the pot, and place on a paper towel-lined sheet pan to cool.
  7. Continue with the remaining batches, making sure to retain the same heat throughout batches. 
  8. Let fritters cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar and serve warm.
