3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups water
Oil for frying
Preheat your oil while you prepare your dough. I used a medium high heat. Mash all ingredients together in a bowl until a thick and sticky dough is formed.
Using two spoons, spoon the dough into the hot oil. Because the dough is so sticky I use the second spoon to scrape the dough off of the first spoon. The batter only needs to cook for about 20-30 seconds (turn if you need to) until golden brown.
When they're looking nice and done scoop them out with a mesh/slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate to cool.
Once you eat one of these bite size pieces of heaven you'll be hooked! I find they're sweet enough as they are but for presentation you could dust with icing sugar, or cinnamon sugar.
