Club:Baked~Bananas Foster Fritters

This is my first post as a part of Club: Baked. What fun I had!! In case you are curious, Club: Baked is a group of food bloggers working their way through  the cookbook  Baked Explorations, Classic American Desserts Reinvented by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. It's a great book! Lots of wonderful recipes, and from what I can see, all of them very useable.
This assignment for today was Bananas Foster Fritters. All I can say is Yum!! This recipe was elegant and down home all at the same time. You start with a Rum Dipping Sauce that is incredible. I'm not much for using alcohol in my recipes, but this was so delicious, that I don't think it would be half as good without it.
The Banana Fritters are deep fried. I used my deep fryer, but you could use a pan with oil in it just as well.
Don't they look gorgeous? The first batch I made were too large, and the fritters were getting brown before they were done. The second batch turned out great.I just made them a little smaller!
Sprinkled with confectioners sugar, and ready to serve.

This is a recipe I will be making again.

  1. Wow you have a deep fryer! That is awesome. Your fritters look great I am glad you joined us!

  2. Oh wow, these sound amazing! I love bananas foster AND I love fritters. :)

  3. Welcome to the group! So far I've enjoyed every recipe we've made. Very impressive you have a deep fryer. Your fritters have great color. Mine were definitely too brown.

    You participate in Secret Recipe Club too right? I'm in group C and saw the blog who was assigned your blog in Aug. Her son made the dish if I remember correctly? Love SRC!

  4. Your fritters came out great! I had issues with them browning before they were done too. I had to take them out and the insides were mushy. Good idea to make them smaller. That probably would have worked for me.

  5. Welcome to Club Baked! I didn't get to make these this time around, but it is sounding like I need to make the caramel sauce!

  6. Welcome to the Group! I've always wanted a deep fryer. But what do you do with all that leftover oil?

  7. Thanks for baking along with me this week. Welcome to the group! I love the little banana decoration on your bowl of rum sauce - Too Cute!

  8. I agree with Tessa. That dipping sauce sounds ever so yummy.

    Welcome to the group. I am sure we are all going to bake some terrific stuff.

  9. Welcome to the group! Great job on the fritters....they look fantastic!
