These after dinner delights are a great way to use up bananas and impress your guests at a dinner party. This recipe was featured in the second series of Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard on Channel 4.

Method

  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, spices, sugar and lemon zest.

  2. Make a well in the mix and add the egg and the milk a little at a time, mixing well until you get a smooth batter. Leave the batter to rest whilst you prepare the chocolate dip.

  3. Place the dark chocolate in a bowl and heat the double cream in a saucepan. Pour the hot cream over the dark chocolate and stir gently until the chocolate has melted. Add the butter and keep stirring until glossy and add the rum and mix well.

  4. Heat some vegetable oil for deep frying in a deep fat fryer or wok to 180°C.

  5. Cut the bananas in half lengthways and half again horizontally. Dip the banana pieces into the batter and coat well.

  6. Gently put the battered banana pieces into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Drain onto kitchen paper. Dust with icing sugar and serve with the chocolate dip.
