1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 loaf sourdough bread (8 inches long)

2 bananas, peeled

1 quart canola oil, for frying


  1. Mix the sugar and cinnamon with a fork until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

  2. Slice the bread into four 2-inch-thick slices.

  3. Cut each banana in half crosswise, then each piece lengthwise.

  4. Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle (do not tear all the way through) to stuff half a banana into; repeat with each bread slice.

  5. In a large pot or a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350ºF; use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter, or it will burn.

  6. Gently place one bread slice into the oil for 1 minute or until light brown.

  7. Turn and fry for another minute on the other side.

  8. Remove bread from the pot and toss it in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

  9. Repeat for each piece.
