Savory, smoky and slightly sweet, these are great with roast pork loin, a hearty bowl of black bean soup or barbecued chicken legs and coleslaw. Dotted with creme fraiche, they make an exotic appetizer.

Make Ahead Tip: Reheat at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup  yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup  all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon  ground chipotle chile (see Ingredient note) or cayenne pepper
1 1/4 cups  roughly mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
1   large egg
2 tablespoons  milk or buttermilk
2 tablespoons  canola oil, divided

Ingredient Note:  Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeno peppers, often used to add heat and a smoky flavor to foods. Ground chipotle can be found in the specialty-spice section of most supermarkets.

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.


Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and chipotle (or cayenne) in a medium bowl. Mix banana, egg and milk (or buttermilk) in another medium bowl. Add the cornmeal mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just incorporated.


Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; using 2 tablespoons of batter for each, space 5 fritters evenly in the pan. Cook until golden brown, 30 seconds to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Cook a second batch with the remaining oil and batter, adjusting heat to prevent burning.


Transfer the fritters to the oven and bake until puffed and firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes.
