Sr. Jean Martinez, SSF


Dry Ingredients:
2 Cups all-purpose flour
4 Ripe bananas, mashed
Pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:
1/4 Cup vegetable oil

Prepare a medium platter lined with 2 layers of white hand towels to absorb excess oil after frying.

Pour 1/4 cups of vegetable oil into an 8-inch iron skillet or heavy frying pan.

Peel and mash 4 ripe bananas until smooth.

Heat the oil.

Slowly add flour to banana mix and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon.

When the oil is hot, scoop banana mixture with a table spoon into the skillet. About the size of a medium pancake.

As the fritters brown around the edges, turn it over with a spatula. It can take 3-4 minutes to cook on each side.

When done, use a big fork to take each fritter out of the pan and place on the platter to drain.

This mixture makes about 8 fritters. Serve alone or with meat and rice. they can be refrigerated and frozen.

Personal Notes:
Sr. Jean Martinez was born in Seine Bight, Belize. She entered the Community on July 25, 1968.

We grew a lot of bananas in my part of Belize. Ripe bananas were abundant, and this was one way to incorporate them into our meals.

Banana fritters are easy to make and fun to eat. They are delicious as a side dish with meat or rice. When you have extra ripe bananas, make fritters!
