Banana Fritters with Coconut and Honey

Method

Activate the yeast in the warm milk. In a bowl combine the flour with butter, egg, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and salt. Combine and then add the yeast. Mix the batter for five minutes until sticky. Now add the banana and fold through. Cover and leave to prove for 30 minutes in a warm spot of the kitchen so it doubles in size. Now knock back the dough by mixing with a spoon.

Fill a pan halfway up with oil. Using two spoons place dollops of the dough into the oil and fry for two minutes until golden all over. Place on paper towel to drain. You may need to do these in batches.

Heat honey with the coconut. Dip the fritters into the coconut honey to coat and serve with crème fraiche.
