From one banana was made 4 fritters. The banana was halved, cut
lengthwise and then cut cross-wise. The batter will do for all fruits,
clams, corn or oysters. Make a sauce of the liquor, mixed with same
quantity of milk, with a tablespoon of butter added, chopped parsley
and flour to thicken. When making oyster or clam fritters use same
rule as for fruit fritters, using clam juice and milk instead of all
For the "fritter batter," sift together 1 pint of flour, 2
teaspoonfuls baking powder and a pinch of salt. Stir slowly into it a
pint of milk, then the well-beaten yolks of 3 eggs, and, lastly, the
stiffly-beaten whites of eggs. Beat hard for a few minutes and fry at
once in smoking hot fat. Orange sections make delicious fritters, or
halves of fresh or canned peaches may be used.
Allow the bananas to stand one-quarter hour in a dish containing a
small quantity of lemon juice and sugar before putting them in the
batter. Lay the slices of bananas or sections of orange in the batter,
then take up a tablespoonful of the batter with one slice of banana
for each fritter, drop into hot fat one at a time, and fry a golden
brown. Sift pulverized sugar over and serve hot. If a small piece of
bread browns in one minute in the fat it is the right temperature to
fry any previously uncooked food.

Banana Fritters

Half a pint of sweet milk, a scant half pint of flour, two rounded

teaspoonfuls of baking powder and a small pinch of salt, stir all

together; this should make a batter as thick as that of cake. Roll the

pieces of fruit in it with a fork, and drop quickly into boiling fat.

The batter should be prepared just as it is wanted and not allowed to

stand. Cut three medium-sized bananas into three pieces each and divide

each slice lengthwise so that the fruit will be thin enough to cook

thoroughly while the batter is browning. This recipe will make eighteen

small fritters. Put them on a hot platter--do not pile up--and serve

immediately with a fruit sauce.
