Sesame Banana Fritter Cupcakes

These banana fritter cupcakes were a very happy accident. I had some very brown, very squishy nanas in my kitchen that were begging to be made into some kind of baked good...and who I am to deny them that opportunity?

Now, I'm no baker but somehow these worked very well, even though I literally made up every measurement. These pillowy treats are soft, toasty, deliciously sweet and so moorish and to top it off, they taste just like the sesame caramel banana fritters I used to inhale at my local all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant. They're crazy simple to make, so off you go - make yourself something tasty.

Eat them hot for the full banana fritter experience.


2 medium nanas mashed

115g light brown sugar

2 toasted sesame seeds (must be toasted for maximum flavour)

85g veg oil

2 tbsp oat milk

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

125g self raising flour

1tsp ground ginger

Pinch of salt


It's all very easy...

🍌 Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees

🍌 Mash your nanas in a bowl

🍌 In another bowl (assuming you have two bowls) whisk together you veg oil and brown sugar until fully combined.

🍌 Whisk in your milk, vanilla essence and sesame seeds.

🍌 Sift in the baking powder, self raising flour then add your ginger and salt.

🍌 Pour into muffin/cupcake paper thingies then sprinkle with lots of Demerara sugar and sesame seeds. You can also make this into a loaf or cake but it will take around an hour to bake.

🍌 Bake for around 18-20 mins or an hour...as above.

🍌 That's it. Enjoy, friends!
