This recipe has been revised. Flour was omitted in the original submission. Two cups flour has been added to the ingredient list. Give it a try!

just don't make these too thick, they will be doughy in the middle. My family liked them alot. We plan to try apples in this too.

Very good recipe! I added more bananas, 4...also added vanilla and a small amount of white sugar and a dash of cinnamon. When they were out of the oil, I sprinkled with powder sugar...YUM! My whole family loved them...

These didn't turn out like I thought and my kids wouldn't eat them till the next day after I reheated them and said they were banana pancakes. Now they love 'em. The taste was ok but the recipe should have just said banana pancakes.

I tried this, the only thing I did different was I cooked them like a pancake instead of frying them. My son liked them, and even took the left overs out for his friends.

I should have read the reviews before I tried this. It was too salty and too runny. Something must be missing from this recipe. I, too, threw mine out.

This recipe is workable once you figure it out. First it cooks best in a deep fat frier that has a temperature control. I cooked them on 300. If you don't have that a low pan of oil on the burner would probably do. While you are cooking them though I found that you had to poke them in the middle after they were half done to get them to cook the middles so they weren't goopy. And they don't have much of a banana taste. If you like them more banana I would add a banana or two.
