We just made these up tonight; they were so good! You must try them!

4 large, ripe bananas, cut in half width-wise, and then each half, in half again, length-wise

1/2 cup cold soy milk

1 tsp lemon juice or white vinegar

1 cup unbleached flour

2 tbsp dry sweetener

1 tbsp cinnamon or Chinese Five-Spice Powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

sparkling water or club soda, as needed

1/2 - 1 cup extra unbleached flour, for dredging bananas

oil for deep frying

In a deep pot, heat four inches of oil to 350 degrees F. Make sure it is the correct temperature!

In a medium bowl, combine the soy milk and lemon juice or white vinegar. Stir in the dry ingredients until well-combined. Add sparkling water or club soda and stir lightly and quickly until the batter is of pancake batter consistancy. Do not overmix or the finished product will be leaden.

Dredge banana slices lightly in the extra flour, then dip thoroughly in the batter. Drop in the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry for 3-4 minutes, turning frequently, until they are a beautiful golden colour. Remove from hot oil with a slotted spoon and let rest on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Keep these hot in a 250 degree F. oven. Repeat with remaining banana slices.

Serve these with generous dollops of vanilla soy ice cream, and/or chocolate sauce, and/or caramel sauce, and/or vegan "whipped cream".

Makes enough for 4-8 people depending on appetites.

That sounds yummy.

Usually I just halve a banana lengthwise, sprinkle on some cinnamon, and pop it in the broiler until golden brown. I have to try this recipe, though.
