Coconut Crusted Bananas--Saturday's Party 11-20-10


Thank you all for linking up last week!  Such great entries! Here's a taste of what was shared real quick, before I give you this perfect banana recipe.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip over at Cookin' With Cat.  What a perfect way to start your Thanksgiving off!  And keep everyone out of that turkey. 

And how about these little turtle doves?  K-girl would get such a kick out of making these with me.  And they'd make a wonderful addition to any candy plates you're making for the holidays.  Check them out at Chestnut Tree Lane.

Easy To Be Gluten Free shared a wonderful recipe for flourless pumpkin rolls.  A perfect treat to lay out for a party buffet. 

Now here's the Coconut Crusted Bananas.  These would be great for a nice intimate dinner with a few friends, since they do take a little time, and they're best eaten warm.

But boy, they are GOOD.

Posted at:
  • 2-3 bananas
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • a sprinkle or 2 cinnamon
  • coconut (about 1/2 a bag)
  • oil for frying--about 1/4 inch in the pan
Peel the bananas and slice into thirds.  Take each third and slice it in 1/2 length-wise.  While the oil is heating in the pan, mix together the water, flour, and cinnamon in a shallow dish.  Place the coconut in another dish.  When the oil is heated through, dredge the bananas in the flour mixture, then roll in the coconut.  Fry for a few minutes on each side, until the coconut is browned.  Serve warm with a brown sugar glaze (I made this by melting together some butter and brown sugar, and a splash of vanilla).
