- Begin by mixing together the cassava flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Next, add in the mashed bananas, egg, and milk and mix until a smooth batter forms.
- Heat oil in a deep pan or a deep fryer to 350°F (175°C). Use a spoon or a cookie scoop to drop the batter by tablespoons into the hot oil. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil.
- These banana fritters can be served with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a drizzle of honey. They are also delicious topped with cinnamon sugar or served with a side of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
