I am excited to reveal the second of my Month of August Fried Dough Celebration recipe. As I mentioned in a previous post, I love warm bananas. Well, this is just another way to get myself more of them! This time, stuffed into a tasty dough and deep fried! It is finished off simply, with powdered sugar. Simply delicious!
Banana Stuffed Fried Dough:
Dough recipe from Almond Joy Fried Dough
4 large ripe bananas, cut into 1/8” slices
1 cup powdered sugar
1/8 scant tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. sugar
oil for frying
Make the dough according to recipe directions, shape into 5 to 6 inch rounds that are between 1/8” to 1/4” thick. Place on a floured surface.
Preheat 3-4 inch of oil in a deep fryer or a frying pan to 375 degrees F.
Add banana, granulated sugar, and cinnamon into a large bowl. Gently stir to combine. To stuff the dough, place about 8 banana slices on one of the rounds. Cover with a second round. Press edges down with fingers to seal. To cook, transfer one at a time, to the hot oil using a large greased spatula. Fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place on paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes about 8 servings.
