Posted by Nimshi

Enough oil for deep frying
100g self-raising flour
1 tbsp baking soda
2 eggs
2 drops of banana essence
splash of iced sparkling water (or you can use soda Water)
2 very ripe bananas, sliced on the diagonal

For the sauce:
100g sugar
100ml double cream
50g butter
1 table spoon of vanilla
50g roasted Cashew nuts, crushed (optional)

Heat the oil in a large saucepan ready for deep frying.
Mix together the flour, baking soda, eggs and sparkling water to make a batter. Add the drops of banana essence at the end and give a final stir.
Dip in the slices of banana to coat, then fry in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes or until crisp and golden. Drain the excess oil on kitchen paper towel.

For the sauce, caramelize the sugar by heating it gently in a hot pan until it turns golden.
Once it's golden brown, add the cream and butter and bring to the boil. Let it reduce for a minute or two in medium heat then add the roasted cashew nuts.
Pour over the bananas fritters and serve hot.

This is a great option for left over bananas in your fruit basket. Even the ones with black spots on the skin.
