Mommy's Banana Donuts

So as any Mom knows, sometimes common foods get simple names. Other times we rename foods so that the kids will eat them because of association. Last week we had Cherry Cheese Blintzes, but Dev has no idea what a blintz is so I told him we were having cherry pancakes with icing. He was super excited for them and ate two of them! This is what Moms do. So when I wanted  to have Banana Fritters later that same week, I told him they were Iced Banana Donuts. He was excited.....until he ate one. He did not like the lemon icing. Oh well, at least he liked the banana fritter donut. :)  So here's what I am sharing with y'all today. I hope you enjoy.

This recipe is from a cookbook that my mother-in-law gave Steve and I when we were just starting out. It's called Pass the Plate. It's by an Episcopal church down in NC circa 1981. This particular recipe was submitted by Annie Kinsey Whitford.

Banana Fritters
Grocery Stuff
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 tsp baking powder
2 tbs sugar
3/4 cup milk
2 ripe bananas, cut into chunks

Cooking Stuff
Combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; mix thoroughly. Add egg, milk and bananas; stir until bananas are small pieces. Heat crisco in deep saucepan; drop by spoonfuls into pan, (about 3 or 4 at a time).  After fritter is cooked and browned {this does not take long}, let drain on paper towel.  Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve hot with Lemon Sauce.

Lemon  Sauce
Grocery Stuff
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 tbs butter
Juice of 1 lemon or 1 tbs water + 1 tbs lemon concentrate
1/2 cup water

Cooking Stuff
Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan.  Heat and let come to a boil, stirring thoroughly.  Cook until mix coats a spoon. Serve on fritters.

This is the perfect breakfast, and I certainly enjoyed it. :)

Have a great day guys, and I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we have!
