  • 100g/4oz plain flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons desiccated or shredded coconut
  • 4 firm bananas vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • 2 tablespoons clear honey
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)


  • Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Stir in
    the sugar. Whisk in the egg and just enough water (you will need about
    6 tablespoons, added a tablespoon at a time) to make a thin batter.
    Whisk in the coconut.
  • Heat enough oil for deep-frying in a preheated wok.
  • Peel the bananas. Carefully cut each one in half lengthways, then cut in
    half widthways. Dip in the batter, then gently drop a few pieces at a
    time into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown.
  • Remove the bananas from the oil using a slotted spoon, and drain on
    kitchen paper. Serve immediately with honey drizzled over and some
    vanilla ice cream, if you like.
