Directions

  1. Peel and mash the ripe plantain.
  2. Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. Blend egg mixture with mashed plantain. Make sure it is all incorporated.
  4. Then sift flour and baking powder into the plantain/egg mixture. Mix it all together.
  5. Add enough milk to obtain a batter that can easily be scooped, but not too liquid either. Not more than a ½ cup.
  6. Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium-high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the plantain fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden.
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar/confectioners’ sugar on top of the hot fritters and serve.
  8. Enjoy!

Cook for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
