Banana Fritters

I was so very excited when Josie came to visit and agreed to show me how to make these banana fritters, from episode 1 of Britains Best Home Cook, Mary Berry loved them on the show... They taste amazing without being over-sweet and they are super quick and easy to make, they took about 10 minutes fro start to finish.

2 Ripe bananas

1/2 cup sugar

Spring roll wrappers or filo pastry

Rapeseed oil for frying

Flaked Almond



1. Prepare bananas by peeling and cutting lengthwise into two halves.

2. Separate wrappers into individual sheets. On a flat working surface, lay wrapper like a diamond. Arrange 1 banana slice in the middle of the diamond and place a sprinkle of almond flakes on top of the banana slice. Fold the bottom pointed end of the wrapper overfilling.

3. Fold side ends of the sheet inward and roll into a log. Wet the pointed edge of the wrapper to completely seal. Repeat with the remaining bananas.

4. In a skillet over medium heat, heat about 1-inch deep of oil. Add sugar and let it melt for a few minutes then banana spring rolls seam side down and fry, turning a few times until the sugar coats the spring roll for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until crisp and golden brown.

5. Sprinkle with sugar then serve with your favourite ice cream, 2 slices of orange and some almond flakes.
