20-Minute Banana Fritters Recipe

Got overripe bananas? Instead of banana bread, make these light, fluffy 20-Minute Banana Fritters for dipping in warm caramel sauce. 


– Vegetable oil, for frying – 3 very ripe, darkly-speckled banana – 2 large egg – 1/4 cup sour cream – 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted – 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1/4 cup sugar – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt – Confectioners’ sugar, for serving – Caramel sauce, for serving

In a large heavy-bottomed stock pot over medium heat, add 4 inches of oil. Side-mount the deep-fry thermometer. Line a big plate with paper towels.  

Step 1


Mix mashed bananas, eggs, sour cream, melted butter, and vanilla in a medium basin. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium basin.   

Step 2

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until incorporated. (Stiff batter) Add heaping 1-tablespoon scoops of dough to 325°F oil with a tiny ice cream scoop or two spoons.  

Step 3

Use several scoops of dough to fill the pot without overcrowding.  Fry the fritters for 3–4 minutes, flipping occasionally, until golden brown. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined dish with a slotted spoon.   

Step 4

Continue frying the remaining dough, returning the oil to 325°F between batches. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar on banana fritters before serving.
