  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 slices bacon (not thick-cut)
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 bananas, peeled and halved crosswise
  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour, plus more for dredging
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 cup very cold seltzer
  • Honey, for drizzling


Step 1

Heat 2 inches vegetable oil to 370 degrees F in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until the fat is rendered but the bacon is still pliable (don't get it too crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Let cool.

Step 3

Spread one side of each bacon slice with peanut butter. Wrap each slice around a banana piece, peanut butter-side facing the banana, pressing to adhere.

Step 4

Spread some cake flour in a shallow bowl for dredging. Whisk the cake flour, confectioners' sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in the seltzer, taking care not to overmix (a few small lumps are fine).

Step 5

Dredge half of the bananas in the flour, then dip in the batter and carefully add to the hot oil. Fry in 2 batches until crisp and golden brown, flipping halfway through, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and repeat with the remaining bananas. Insert skewers into the bananas. Drizzle with honey and serve immediately.
