- 100g self-raising flour
- 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 150ml milk
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 3 bananas
- Clear honey to serve
Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk and mix well to a smooth batter. Gradually beat in the remaining milk.
Heat some vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or wok.
Peel the bananas and cut in half lengthwise and then cut each piece into three horizontally.
Dip the banana pieces in the batter and then gently lower into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Cook a few pieces at a time then remove and drain on kitchen paper. Serve with honey for dipping.
When deep frying choose a pan that’s larger than the burner you are cooking on and don’t fill more than half full with oil. If you have a thermometer heat the oil to 180°C, otherwise place a cube of bread in the oil and if it turns golden brown in 45 secs the oil is ready.
