Online recipe for fried bananas

Online recipes are abundant in many places on the internet including and many online writers right here on HubPages are contributing recipes among their other writings as well.

Fried bananas are sweet, tasty and satisfying. Here in this hub is an easy online recipe for fried bananas. Fried bananas taste great and fried bananas can be eaten as either a side dish or a dessert.

When plantains are not readily available to you, FRIED BANANAS make a great substitution. In various Caribbean and Latin cultures, it is common to use plantains for cooking a side dish. In a Jamaican dish for example, the three elements of rice and peas, plantains, and meat such as curried chicken make up a common entrée.

Plantains are often used by Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Trinidadians as well, just to name a few.

Depending on your own location, plantains may be difficult to find in your local grocery store. Within the United States for example, the plantains are easy to find in certain neighborhoods where cultures bring high demand.

Neighborhood grocery stores and supermarkets that do not see a high demand for plantains do not always stock them. If you are craving some delicious plantains and looking for a simple substitution, here is an easy recipe for fried bananas.

Sweet and scrumptious, these fried bananas can be served in the dinner plate as a side dish or in a smaller dish as a dessert. Using the type of dish in which creme brulee is often served makes for a nice presentation.

  • These fried bananas can be served alone, with a little extra cinnamon sprinkled on top or with some vanilla ice cream.
  • You might have seen the latter (fried bananas with vanilla ice cream) offered on the dessert menu of a local Thai restaurant.

For frying the bananas

First, heat a frying pan with a coating of extra mildly flavored olive oil or canola oil. While the oil is heating,


  • 1/2 cup of white flour,
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar and
  • two tablespoons of cinnamon into a bowl and mix to distribute evenly.

Next, take the slice of banana in whichever sizes you chose to cut them and dip them into the bowl of flour mix, coating well.

As you coat each slice of banana, place it into the heated frying pan.

 Observe your fried bananas as they begin to turn a golden brown and flip them with a spatula as needed. Allow excess oil to drip out as you remove the banana slices from the pan or absorb excess oil on a paper towel before transferring the bananas to serving dish.

Done, serve and enjoy!
