Banana Dabs with Banana-Albumen Dip

Dabs are another word for Dodger, which is a word commonly used to describe the hush puppy. These Banana Dabs are a lot like a hush puppy in that they are fried bread balls, but what makes these awesome is their light and fluffy banana texture and flavor. Even better is the frothy sweet banana dip that goes with it. But if you don’t like the idea of eating albumen (raw egg whites) then rest assured that these little dabs go excellent with chocolate syrup!


Banana Dabs 

1 3/4 cup flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 ripe banana, mashed

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup water*

Banana-Albumen Dip:

3 tsp sugar

2 egg whites

1 ripe banana, mashed


1. Heat at least an inch of oil in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2. Mix together mashed banana with the vanilla, then add in flour, sugar and baking powder. Slowly mix in the water. *You may need up to another 1/4 cup but only until the batter is sticky.

3. Spoon out large teaspoons of batter into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on all sides- about a minute. Dabs will be beautiful and puffy.

4. Set all dabs to drain on paper towels.

5. In mixer whip egg whites with sugar and mashed banana until super frothy and thick.

  1. Oh yeah – I’m pinning this! I hope you put it on RecipeNewZ because it DESERVES attention! I will pin it over there myself. Bananas are the hub’s favorite fruit so this is going to be a huge hit when I surprise him with them.
