I followed the recipe to a T, with the exception of only using 1 banana (just for me), so I changed the serving size to reflect that. I had plenty of sugar mixture left over so that can easily be reduced. This was surprisingly tasty,the smell of the bananas browning in the butter was just heavenly. DO make sure you use very firm bananas as they will soften and sweeten.. I can see this being a disaster if you use a ripe bananas (they will turn to mush). Mine cooked up in 10 minutes (5 on each side). I served mine as a trio on a plate to make it look more appealing. Placed some on top of melted dark chocolate and served alongside some fresh whipped cream. This would be fantastic like suggested on vanilla ice cream and you could even use the leftover butter in the pan to make a quick caramel. Would love to try this as a topping to some pancakes for a special breakfast.-16 Aug 2016

These may not be pretty, but they certainly were tasty served over a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, My bananas were a bit ripe, but you really do want to use very firm bananas to keep them from getting too soft. Nandabear, simple recipe, but a good one! Thanks for sharing.-07 Jul 2015


Fried Bananas

These simple pan-fried bananas recipes is perfect sprinkled with cinnamon and for an extra special treat, top it with vanilla ice cream.

Friday at 12:01 a.m., I woke up and drank a glass of maple syrup and chased it with an entire 85% dark chocolate candy bar. Then I put on my apron strings and made ice cream cookies and ate ever single one of them. Ok, yeah, that didn’t happen.

A couple of things I learned from the 21 Days Sugar Detox:

1) I need to stick as close to the diet as possible. Sugar and me are like oil and vinegar.

2) I need to eat more vegetables. I’m like the kid who licked broccoli and said I ate it. I’m going to strive to eat veggies 2x a day.

3) This diet is an excellent reset and will help you “see” those cheats you have let into your diet.

I did lose inches which I’m happy about.

So to finish up my 21 Day Sugar Detox journey I’m going to share the simplest of bananas recipes that just ROCKED. I would never have dreamed up anything fried if it had not been for the detox. I ate 2 bananas and wanted more but yeah, carbs right? I never thought to make fried bananas but GIRL it turned out so good that it’s now a family dessert favorite.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 (8-in.) square spring roll pastry wrappers (such as Spring Home)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 qt.s vegetable oil
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz.) salted butter
  • 6 tablespoons (3 oz.) rum
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecan halves
  • Butter-pecan ice cream

Prepare the bananas: Place granulated sugar in a shallow pie plate or baking dish. Toss bananas in sugar shake off excess.

Place 4 spring roll wrappers on a work surface with 1 point facing you (so that they look like diamonds). Place 1 banana on each wrapper, 1 inch above bottom point. Carefully begin wrapping banana from the bottom up, keeping the roll as tight as possible. Fold in the sides of the wrapper (like a burrito). Brush 1 inch of top point with some of the beaten egg, and continue to wrap, pressing to secure roll. Repeat with remaining bananas, wrappers, and egg. Place rolls in a single layer on a sheet pan lined with a damp paper towel. Freeze 1 hour.

Heat oil to 325°F in a large Dutch oven. Fry banana rolls, 2 or 3 at a time, until golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Prepare the sauce: Cook brown sugar and butter in a skillet over medium-high, whisking constantly, until melted and bubbly, 3 to 4 minutes. Tilt pan away from you, and carefully add the rum, whisking until smooth. Remove pan from heat, and stir in cream and pepper.

Slice banana rolls in half diagonally. Spoon sauce over top, sprinkle with pecans, and serve with ice cream.


    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 3 bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise
    • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
    • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  1. Make the Caramel
    1. Place a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the brown sugar and butter. Allow both to melt and mix well using a heatproof silicone spatula.
    1. When the caramel is hot and bubbly, add the bananas, cut side down, along with the pecans. Allow the bananas to cook for about 3 minutes before turning them over. The cut side should have a deep golden brown color and a slightly crispy texture. (Depending on the ripeness of the banana, they may break. Don’t worry about this they will still be delicious.)
    2. Cook for another 2 minutes, using a spoon to drizzle the caramel sauce over the bananas to keep infusing them with caramel flavor.
    1. Place the bananas on a serving dish or platter, top with scoops of ice cream, and drizzle the caramel sauce and nuts all over it.
    1. ADVANCE PREPARATION
    1. The bananas are best served just after they are made. They will lose their crispy caramelized texture as they sit but will still retain their flavor so long as they are not refrigerated.
    1. If you must make them in advance, the bananas can be held in a warm oven for a few hours.

    These bananas sound amazing! Whip up a quick caramel or peanut butter sauce, and these could be a perfect dessert!

    I've never had this before, but it sounds interesting, like something I would like, and maybe my grandkids would like. I wonder if you could bake a whole cookie sheet of these banana slices in the oven and have them come out crispy. there are lots of other "oven fried" dishes, so it seems like it would work.

    You might be trying to imagine what kind of main dish banana empanada might enhance. Well, in Brazil, it can accompany various meats ( pan-grilled pork chops, steak and eggs ), as well as black beans . It might sound like an odd combo– except in Brazil. However, beans and bananas (salty and sweet) go very well together. Banana makes a great sub for meats though! I t won’t kill you to give this combo a try. 🙂

    And it is not just fried bananas– we also bread and deep-fry spears of pineapple to eat with beans. Further, we enjoy feijoada , Brazil’s national bean-based dish, with either pineapple or fresh sliced oranges.

    Brazilians are not oddballs– just creative cooks. 🙂

    Just as the Japanese created vegetable tempura , and Caribbeans and Hispanic Latins eat sweet plantains and tostones with this black beans and rice , and also banana fritters, Brazil likewise enjoys the delicious union of both.


    Serving Suggestions

    Once they are cooked, dust with a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice for a warming flavor that&rsquos great in the fall.

    Add some to the top of Vegan Waffles for a beautiful presentation.

    Makes a great warm topping to these Vegan Pancakes.

    Serve them in a bowl and serve with a dollop of Whipped Coconut Cream.

    Enjoy the fried bananas on a slice of Baked Oatmeal.

    Serve on ice cream, cheesecake or banana custard.


    A popular Mexican dessert is cinnamon-dusted bananas or plantains pan-fried in butter then drizzled with sweetened condensed milk called Platanos con Lechera.

    A Dessert Full of Memories

    This dish holds many memories for our photographer Andrés from when he was growing up in Cuernavaca.

    I remember when I was a kid. Every day around 5:00pm we heard a whistle in the distance and we knew the banana and sweet potato cart was coming. The smell was unmistakeable, steam, wood burning fire, and banana.

    Like it was for the tamale cart in the morning, the afternoon was for the banana man with his three wheeled silver cart which to us looked like a locomotive passing down the street announcing it’s arrival.

    We only needed a piece of brown paper and a few pesos to take this dessert home to enjoy.

    Our mother’s also used to make them for us regularly because it was so easy to prepare.

    At Mauricio’s, one of our favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, this dessert is always served at the end of your meal. Could be one of the reasons we like the place so much :)

    Ingredients

    • 4 large bananas or 4 plantains (about 2 ½ lbs.)
    • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 6 ounces sweetened condensed milk (Lechera)
    • 2 tablespoons sugar (optional)

    How to Make

    Peel the bananas. Cut the banana in half then cut each piece in half lengthwise.

    Sprinkle the bananas with ground cinnamon.

    Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.

    Place the cinnamon-dusted bananas in the pan cinnamon side up.

    Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until the bananas are golden brown.

    To Serve

    Place 4 slices of banana on a dessert plate then drizzle with the sweetened condensed milk. Serve warm.
