banana (or apple) fritters

I came across this recipe for fritters in an old book my mom had gotten as a wedding shower gift, it's called "Cook Like a Peasant, Eat Like a King" by Maria Luisa Scott and Jack Scott. I made them using bananas sliced on a diagonal about 3/4 of an inch thick. I used 3 bananas and just mixed them into the batter and then dropped each slice along with extra batter using a large tablespoon into the oil. Then drained them for a second and rolled them in caster sugar and cinnamon. They were really delicious! This dough recipe is really yummy, kind of like a zeppole or funnel cake. The yeast in the beer transforms the dough into a raised donut like consistency.
