Battered Bananas Dixie


  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 bananas, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon powdered cinnamon


  1. Whisk together pancake mix, milk, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl. Fold in banana slices into batter a few at a time.
  2. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Spoon in a small amount of batter into oil. If it bubbles, oil is ready.
  3. Add battered banana slices into hot oil. Fry until golden, about 1 minute on each side.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Repeat with remaining banana slices.
  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Add warm fried banana slices and cover with cinnamon sugar.
  6. Transfer to a plate and serve.
