Banana Fritters

This recipe for banana fritters was absolutely delicious - specially if you have a sweet tooth. It's also fairly easy to make.

The buñuelos are supposed to be actually balls, but when I made them, having added water as the original recipe called for, the batter was too thin so it made flats instead. Even after adding considerably more flour all I got were thicker flats. They were delicious flats, so I'm not sure it matters.
