I am always trying to recreate fried bananas that I had as a kid when we lived in Guam. They were so good.
I have never had anything like them since.
So today I made these.
2 ripe bananas
2 T tapioca starch
a dash or two of salt
1 t baking powder - I use Rumford
1/2 t freshly grated nutmeg
Mash the bananas in a bowl.
Add the egg and beat.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Let the batter sit a minute so the baking powder starts to work.
Put a few spoonfuls in a medium hot pan with a little melted ghee. You need to cook these on a lower heat because they will burn on the outside and still be raw inside.
Yield: 3-4 waffles or 8 pancakes
Boy, were these tasty!!
This is what the mixture looks like.
I wondered how these would be if I cooked them in the waffle iron. So I tried it.
The waffles came out well but they were not crispy. The batter did not stick to the iron. I had to make the second one on a lower heat setting. I liked them!! So sweet. I did not have to add anything except a bit of butter!
