Deep Fried Banana Puffs

contributed by Marcia Curtis Bailey

1 3/4 c. flour
2/3 c. granulated sugar
… 1 t. baking powder
1 mashed overripe banana
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 c. water
3 c. vegetable oil

Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder thoroughly in mixing bowl. Stir in banana, vanilla and water for a smooth, sticky dough. Heat vegetable oil in deep fryer or tall saucepan to 350 F. Drop batter by large spoonfuls (about ¼ c.) into oil.  Cook in batches of 4 or 5 puffs for about 3 minutes, until they turn golden brown and float to the surface. Turn the puffs to cook other side. Remove and drain onto paper towels.
