Jamaican Ripe Banana Fritters

Most people think that Jamaican banana fritters are more like pancakes, but the real Jamaican banana fritters are not. They are thin, light and airy, literally melting in your mouth. Once the batter meets the hot skillet, the fritters puff up so beautifully. It is eaten with just some sugar sprinkled on top, how much more does it take to be in heaven?

You will need:
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 egg at room temperature
½ teaspoon Madagascar vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
white sugar to serve
Egg, Vanilla and Nutmeg
 This will take no time at all. Mash 1 ripe banana, one that has lots of brown spots on the skin, with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Brown sugar gives the batter a lovely deep flavor. In another bowl, whisk 1 egg, ½ teaspoon Madagascar vanilla extract, and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg.
Egg Mixture, Mashed Banana Mixture, Flour and Baking Soda
Mix with the mashed banana and sugar. Add 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt to the mixture and mix well.
Fritters In the Skillet, Getting Golden Brown
Heat a skillet over medium low heat, before adding 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Pour 1 tablespoon of mixture for each fritter. Don’t crowd the skillet with too many fritters at a time. The skillet should always have enough oil. The fritters will take about 1 minute on each side over medium low heat. The fritter will start bubbling and you will see the edges getting a nice golden color, then you can flip it over. 
The Fritters
You can use a fork and poke into the fritter to see if it is done. If it comes out clean, then it’s done. Once the fritter is done, place on a kitchen towel so that it can absorb the excess oil.
Enjoying the Fritters!
Then transfer to a plate and sprinkle with white sugar and you are ready to dig in. This batter yields 12 fritters or serves 4. VoilĂ . So go ahead and enjoy!
