Banana Churros

Ok, so I don't really know what to call these things. They taste like banana funnel cakes laced with crack. Ok, you can't taste any crack, but they're hella addictive and delicious. Make sure to share, because these bad boys are deep fried which means you may as well stuff them in your pants- cause that's where they're going! Haha You'll need:

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.
