Jamaican Banana Fritters (cookingmaniac)

3 super ripe bananas
2 eggs, whites separated
1 t vanilla
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
2 c flour
1/4 c milk
1 T molasses
1 T sugar
pinch of salt
enough oil to shallow fry the fritters

In a large bowl smash the bananas along with the egg yolk. Add the spices and sugar, combine together. Add the flour and milk alternatively. When combined, whisk the egg whites. Slowly add in the egg whites careful as not to deflate the volume. Heat a large skillet or cast iron with oil up to about 1/2″ on medium heat until hot but not smoking. Using a large spoon, scoop up the batter and fry in batches. Do not over crowd the pan. Note: You will see the edge of the fritters start to turn a golden brown color. Turn only once. Using a slotted spoon, remove the fritters and place them on paper towels. Allow to sit for about a minute. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar. Serve warm with peanut butter or nutella.
