20 Min

It's no secret that Elvis loved the combination of banana and peanut butter. To celebrate the life and legacy of The King of Rock and Roll we fried up some banana fritters and drizzled them with a warm peanut butter and chocolate sauce. One bite of Elvis' Banana Fritters is all you need to feel "all shook up"!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 ripe bananas, finely chopped
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat oil to 375 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add egg yolks, milk, vanilla, and peanut butter, stir until smooth; mixture will be stiff. Stir in bananas.
  3. Gently drop banana mixture by heaping tablespoons into hot oil, a few at a time. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked in center, turning over during cooking. With a slotted spoon, remove fritters to a paper towel-lined platter. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Let cool 5 minutes, then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.

I have heard the stories about Elvis and banana fritters. I guess I was thinking this recipe would be so much more involved. It really is not and I think it would be an appropriate breakfast or brunch item from time to time. I got to try it with the drizzle of chocolate sauce.

I could only hope that my Elvis' banana fritters turn out this golden brown. They look simple delicious. The recipe is easy enough but I have a hard time cooking a fritter so that they look like a fritter.

very good
