I found the recipe for these Banana Fritters at a blog I came across called My Forking Life.  That name made me laugh out loud.  Thanks Tanya.  

Tanya calls this recipe Quick and Easy Jamaican Banana Fritters.  I followed her recipe, using bananas that I had put in the freezer when they got over ripe.  If you are using bananas that are not already mushy and liquidy you may need to mash them before combining all the other ingredients.  I used my kitchen aid to mix the batter and I sprinkled my fritters with cinnamon sugar as they came out of the frying oil.
