Deep Fried Bananas
Deep Fried Bananas only needs 4 ingredients and you can get it done in less than 15 minutes.
Let’s talk about one of the most basic desserts that will save you on more than one occasion. Fried bananas are a classic recipe that gives you a crunchy banana that is soft and hot in the inside.
It is a good way to use ripe bananas that are close to getting spoiled.
This recipe is like a warm brownie that works 100x times better with ice cream. The contrast between hot and cold is an explosion in your mouth. That’s why I like to serve mine as soon as I take them out of the pan. You can see in the pictures that the ice cream is partially melted and that’s how I like it.
Also, you can get creative with the toppings: you can add condensed milk, caramel, melted chocolate, powder sugar, cinnamon, etc.
As I wanted something simpler and with some texture, I add some chopped candied pecans.
How to make deep fried bananas?
This version I’m making is the Brazilian version of fried bananas that it’s basically breaded bananas.
Other versions of deep-fried banana make a type of batter that will give you a smoother finish. An example of this is Gulgulas ( the Indian version of fried bananas).
The frying coating I use is the all-time classic eggs + breadcrumbs. Then is just frying the bananas until you get a crusty brown look.
You can cut the banana into round slices if you want bite-size fried bananas or you can cut the bananas in half and get tow medium size pieces.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and I see you in the next one!
