- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- coconut or peanut oil for frying
Whisk egg and sugar together until batter is bubbly and thick.
Heat just over half an inch of oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan.
Slice bananas into rounds approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Dip banana rounds into the batter, then transfer immediately into the hot oil.
Flip banana pieces over to ensure even browning on all sides. The batter will only take a few seconds to cook.
Remove bananas from oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper-towel-lined plate to blot excess fat.
Serve hot with a generous grinding of black pepper or a scoop of lemon ice cream.
