Banana Fritters Recipe

This Banana Fritters Recipe is most popularly known in Davao as Pinaypay. Each banana fritter is made using Saba bananas (sometimes known as Cardaba bananas) with 3 or 4 vertical slits. The partitions had to be spread to resemble a fan, hence the name "Pinaypay". The banana is then dipped in a batter and fried then coated with white sugar. I believe most of you had one of these as a snack either in your household or in your schools since Pinaypay is one of the most common way to cook bananas for merienda. 

I remember, we used to buy this for 1 peso each, but today, Pinaypay is now sold for 5 pesos a piece. I know, I know, times have changed and prices have gone steep. But this doesn't stop us from buying a piece and eating it. I invite you then that next time you purchase "saging na saba", try this Banana Fritters Recipe and enjoy an afternoon snack with your family.

1.  In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

2.  Add in the evaporated milk, slightly beaten egg and vanilla extract with the dry ingredients. Mix.

You may also add orange coloring as most of the banana fritters sold in the sidewalk have a hint of orange color in the batter.

3.  Peel the bananas and make 3 or 4 slits leaving about 1/4" to 1/2" on one end to hold the slits. Spread.

4.  Heat oil in a pan. Dip the bananas in the batter and fry using medium heat until brown.

5.  Place in paper towel for excess oil to be absorbed.

6. Coat with white sugar.

7.  Serve your Pinaypay. Enjoy!
