Banana Corn Fritters

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/banana_corn_fritters.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2006

Savory, smoky and slightly sweet, these are great with roast pork loin, a hearty bowl of black bean soup or barbecued chicken legs and coleslaw. Dotted with creme fraiche, they make an exotic appetizer.

5 servings, 2 cakes each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 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.
