Directions

Step 1

Slice bananas into thick angled slices, about 1/2-inch thick. Toss gently with rum and set aside.

Step 2

Heat oil in a pot to 350 F (medium high heat for 8 minutes).

Step 3

Combine 1 cup flour with baking powder and salt. Whisk in egg and cold water until smooth.

Step 4

Dust a banana slice with a little of remaining flour, shake off and dip into batter. Using a pair of tongs, place fritter in hot oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Remove to drain on a paper towel. Cook fritters together, leaving a half inch between them as they fry in the pot.

Step 5

Cream chestnut puree to soften and stir in rum. Add crème fraiche and blend. Chill cream to firm up.

Step 6

Arrange fritters on a small plate or in a bowl with a dollop of cream on the side. Dust with icing sugar. For a garnishing twist, make a cone of parchment paper, and place fritters inside.
