Banana Fritters Cup Cake
In Sri Lanka, we have lots of varieties of plantains – green, red, and yellow. My Mum used lots of yellow plantains for these fritters, but in the UK bananas are more freely available so I have adapted my Mum’s recipe to use bananas and instead of deep-frying them, I bake them in the oven. No butter, no oil!
3 ripe bananas
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup coconut milk
Pre heat the oven 180*, mix the wet ingredients together then add sugar and mix well. Add the dry ingredients with the banana and give it a rough mix. Arrange cup cake cases on a tray then fill with the mixture. Bake for about 20 minutes.
I serve them with just a dusting of icing sugar – but it is tastier when you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
