heat oil in medium\small pot
slice bananas to desired thickness.. I prefer about 1/2 in... set aside
pour pancake mix in medium bowl. add flour and baking soda. sift together.
add ingredients according to pkg. directions. in my case it was just add water) (which seems to work best)
dunk banana slices into batter one at a time.
drop 4 at a time into hot oil and fry until lightly browned and is crispy.
remove from oil and drain and cool on wire racks. (place wax paper underneath cuz it may get messy)
in a seperate bowl pour in powdered sugar.
remove any "tails" of fried dough from ur banana balls.. ( do not discard.. they make great crumbles for on top of icecream!)
when completely cool roll the fried banana balls into the powdered sugar. coat completely! so they look like snowballs.
assemble on a plate and serve..
tip: when dropping into hot oil they do sink to the bottom and may stick... affter a few seconds just gently scrape them off and then they will float. fry for only a few seconds more. do not over fry or they will burn.
makes a great snack, dessert or party pleaser!
