Banana Fritters with Spiced Glaze

I like to go all out on Saturday mornings. It’s really the only day of the week I can do breakfast up right with all the fixins’ since Monday thru Friday mornings are a mad dash of bodies, backpacks, missing socks, frantically gulped coffee and hastily applied mascara as I scramble to get my kids out the door to school. Sundays are pretty much the same except I feel a lot worse about yelling at my kids (for the fourth time) to get in the car when we’re heading out to church instead of school. Oh yeah, Christian Mom of the year right here! Anyhoo, now that I’ve outed myself, let’s move on to my most recent Saturday morning treat. Fritters. Deep fried, crusty on the outside, warm and soft on the inside fritters. Yum yum yum.

Whenever I make something, I mentally rate it on a scale of how simple or difficult the recipe is versus how delicious the food turns out. No, I’m not OCD enough to have an actual spreadsheet or anything like that. It’s just a running filing system in my brain. If something is incredibly good, but takes a whole lot of effort it becomes a special occasion kind of treat or meal. Something can taste amazing, but if it requires three hours in the kitchen, I won’t make it often…no matter how delectable it is. Then there are the magical things that are impossibly easy and mind blowingly delicious. Like these light and sweet, melt in your mouth doughnuts. I could make these every single day. And never grow tired of them. Except, then I’d gain about 200 pounds. It would almost be worth it to get to eat these on a daily basis. Move aside Krispy Kreme. See ya’ Dunkin…I’m making my own doughnuts from now on. [Read more…]
