Oh, my goodness have I got a banana recipe for you! Banana beignets. Ever heard of them? I hadn’t until Maranda at Jolts & Jollies made them and then I couldn’t stop thinking about them. I never blog about a recipe the same day I make it but these, oh, I couldn’t keep these from you a moment longer. I also wanna apologize for the less than stellar photos but I had the kids gathered around me wanting to eat them hot and I’m still trying to figure out my camera’s manual setting.
A coupla notes about the recipe. Besides being insanely delicious(the beignets) the batter is super easy to make. BUT I’m not gonna lie, I needed another pair of hands once I started frying. You could go it alone but I found things went smoother once I called in reinforcements. Another thing, your first coupla beignets aren’t going to look like much but that’s okay ‘cause they’re gonna taste just as good as the pretty ones. The pretty ones? Those will be the last few batches you make as you get the hang of things. The recipe called for rolling the beignets in cinnamon sugar but I only did half of them and used powdered sugar on the other half. (The kids were all over the powdered sugar ones.) Almost done and I’ll let you can get to makin’ these for yourself. The recipe calls for banana extract. If you have it, use it and really kick up the banana goodness! :)
