1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 dash few grindings of nutmeg
1 dash ground cinnamon
2 large eggs -- lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter -- melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup vegetable or peanut oil for frying
4 medium ripe bananas peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 tablespoons confectioners sugar for dusting

Preparation / Directions:

1. At least one hour before serving, combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then whisk together with the eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla. Allow the batter to rest 1 hour at room temperature. 2. In a large frying pan over medium heat, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees, or until a drop of batter sizzles immediately when it touches the oil. Dip the banana slices into the batter, coating them well, and cook until golden brown, turning with a slotted spoon. Cook only 5 to 6 slices at a time, so the oil does not cool. Drain the fritters on paper towels, transfer them to a platter, dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve hot
