    mersaydees's Note:

    This is based on a recipe from Madge Rosenberg's cookbook, The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever - Ethnic Breads. She says, "These fritters, similar to what we know as beignets, make inexpensive party food rich in natural fruit flavors. Children will enjoy munching these crispies with milk, but the big kids will eat their way through an endless supply with coffee or beer." My kind of fritters!

      Lovely banana flavor in these fritters. Tasting the batter I did increase sugar up to 1/2 cup, not too sweet at all, and salt to 1 teaspoon. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg.

      Easy to prepare, and DH loved them (I made them for him, since I don't like bananas!). He ate one as was, and felt it needed something, which turned out to be the sprinkled sugar, then they were perfect! Thank you for an unusual recipe, I was happy to find another side to my breadmachine! Thanks, mersaydees!
