How To Make Caribbean Banana Fritters
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just mixed and moistened.
In a deep, heavy skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees.
Carefully, dollop batter in heaping Tablespoon portions into the hot oil.
Fry until golden brown on the bottom - about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, gently flip the fritters and fry other side to golden brown - about 1 more minute.
Transfer cooked fritters to stacked paper towels.
A 10-inch skillet will fit about 6 fritters per batch.
Be sure to monitor the oil temperature between batches. If the temperature goes over 400 or under 350, take the time to adjust the heat.
Makes about 16 fritters.
Serve warm... alone, dusted with powdered sugar or drizzled with maple syrup.
These warm donuts with a bold banana flavor are popular in the resorts of St. Lucia and the Caribbean Islands. Enjoy warm with your favorite topping as you would pancakes.

Make sure to use ultra ripe bananas for a more intense flavor. I added walnuts and sharp cheddar for a more hearty flavor, oh and I also added about 3/4 tsp more baking powder and they were really light and fluffy. Sorry can't ever seem to just follow a recipe.
