Recipe Ingredients for Banana Corn Fritters

3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder (18369)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or ground chipotle chile pepper (see Ingredient note)
3 medium (about 1 1/4 cups) bananas, roughly mashed
1 large egg
2 tablespoons whole milk or buttermilk
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided

Recipe Directions for Banana Corn Fritters

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and chipotle (or cayenne) in a medium bowl. Mix banana, egg and milk (or buttermilk) in another medium bowl. Add the cornmeal mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just incorporated.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; using 2 tablespoons of batter for each, space 5 fritters evenly in the pan. Cook until golden brown, 30 seconds to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Cook a second batch with the remaining oil and batter, adjusting heat to prevent burning.

  4. Transfer the fritters to the oven and bake until puffed and firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes.

  5. Ingredient Note: Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeno peppers, often used to add heat and a smoky flavor to foods. Ground chipotle can be found in the specialty-spice section of most supermarkets.
