For the fried bananas
  • 4 Large Bananas ,cut in half then sliced the long way into 3 slices. (Each banana should yield 6 slices)
  • 2 Large Eggs ,scrambled
  • 1 Cup Crushed corn flakes ,I pulsed mine in my blender
  • 1/2 Cup Packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 2 Cups Vegetable oil for frying bananas
For the Bananas Foster dipping sauce
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted butter ,melted
  • 1 Cup Brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Light corn syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Dark Rum ,optional (the alcohol will get cooked out of it)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ΒΌ teasoon Cinnamon
For the Bananas Foster dipping sauce
  1. (I like to start by making the sauce first because you don't want your fried bananas to sit too long.)
  2. In a medium pan, melt butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and rum on stove over medium heat. Cook and stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved. About 5-10 minutes once it begins to bubble. Once sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and add vanilla and cinnamon. Pour into a serving dish and set aside.
For the fried bananas
  1. Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan to about 350 Degrees F on a candy thermometer. (You may need to adjust heat slightly as you cook)
  2. While oil is heating.
  3. Mix the crushed corn flakes, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.
  4. Dip banana pieces in the scrambled egg to moisten then dip in corn flake mixture to coat. Place on a clean tray and set aside.
  5. Before you begin to fry your bananas have a large cookie sheet with a large cooling rack ready. You will want to place your fried bananas on the rack to cool. (It will keep them more crisp than if you let them drain on a paper towel.)
  6. Place a few bananas in the heated oil at a time. Don't overcrowd them. Let it cook for about 20-30 seconds on one side then flip and cook on the other side for the same amount of time or until they begin to brown. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn. Use a slotted spoon to remove them to your cooling rack. Continue to cook all of your bananas. Serve immediately as they will begin to get less crispy as they sit.
