Bananas Foster Fritters [Club: BAKED]

Look’s like it is a two-post day. Since I got some good dissertation work in today I don’t feel too bad. Not only was it time to post for the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club today, but it is that time again for the Club: BAKED post and I almost forgot to post these today! This time around Stephanie at Ice Cream Before Dinner picked Bananas Foster Fritters. So, I made these a while ago and didn’t have as much success as I would have hoped. I was excited to try my hand at frying again. I had pretty decent success with the doughnuts a few month ago, but this one… not so much.


Everything seemed to be going fine, but I am guessing the oil temperature just got too hot because I had to take the fritters out so they wouldn’t burn. I took them out and from the outisde they looked pretty good.


But, check out the inside… Not quite done! I decided to plop them in the oven and although I don’t have another picture they did cook up some more and weren’t as mushy inside. Anyway, in the end they did taste pretty good.

  1. That same thing happened to mine, popping them in the oven was a good idea! Yours look so tasty!

  2. Frying is tricky. I had issues too. I had to lower the temperature to 350-360. Even at the lower temp I cooked mine until they were overbrowned to ensure they were done in the middle. Maybe one of these days I’ll master deep frying!

    Your fritters look delicious. Great idea to finish them up in the oven.

  3. I think the frying was very tricky. I wanted the fritters I made to be much larger, but the only way I could get them cooked through was to make them smaller. It looks like this was a common problem. Thanks for all you nice words. I am a new follower.

  4. Sorry they didn’t turn out quite right. I ended up sitting this one out by necessity, but would love to give these a shot!

  5. Sorry they didnt work for you but there’s always next time. They still look good though.

  6. Putting them in the oven was very smart! Mine were a tad undone in the middle, too. Sorry these didn’t come out quite right for you. At least they still tasted pretty good! :) Thanks for baking along with me this week!

  7. Thanks Katie! Yes, the oven did the trick. If I make these again I think I’ll be more careful with my oil temp.

  8. Gloria – Sorry you had issues too! I guess we’ll just have to keep practicing!

  9. Teri – Definitely more issues with this frying experience than I did with the doughnuts. I think I’ll have to be more careful with my oil temp. I’m so glad you are following now. I find this so much fun!

  10. Tessa – It wasn’t too bad in the end, but if you did try them my recommendation is to have the oil at a lower temp than what the recipe calls for. They might take a little longer to cook, but hopefully they will be done inside without burning outside.

  11. Thanks Karen! I agree there is always a next time. I enjoy trying to get things right! :-)

  12. Stephanie – Great pic! Even though I had some issues they still tasted good and the oven helped. Next time I’ll just have to watch my oil temp more carefully.

  13. I had to lower my oil temp as well because my first batch came out rather well done. Great idea using the oven to finish them off.
