These Brandied Banana Fritters are flavorful, crispy, melt-in-your-boozy mouth bites of pure goodness. An easy recipe that you should try at least ONCE!


Banana Fritters

  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons shortening melted
  • 2 -3 bananas
  • oil for deep frying

Brandy Sauce

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar by sifting them together.
  • Mix the egg, milk, and melted shortening in a separate bowl.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until a smooth batter forms.  Despite being a stiff batter, the fritters will retain a refreshingly crisp texture even after cooking.
  • Slice each banana into 3 chunks, lightly dust them with flour, and coat them with the fritter batter.
  • Fry the coated bananas in hot deep oil (375 F) until they turn golden brown, ensuring to flip them regularly.
  • Drain the fritters on paper towels.

For the Brandy Sauce

  • Take a saucepan and add sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  • Pour in boiling water gradually while stirring constantly.
  • Simmer the mixture over low heat for approximately 5 minutes, or until it becomes clear and thickened.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in butter, brandy, and nutmeg.
  • Serve the warm Brandy Sauce over the banana fritters.
