Banana Fritters

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3 very ripe bananas

2/3 cup superfine sugar

1/4 cup milk

3 to 5 tablespoons cornstarch, plus more if needed

1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Mash bananas into a thick, coarse paste using your fingers or a wooden spoon; stir in the sugar, milk, 3 tablespoons of the cornstarch and nutmeg. Add more cornstarch as needed to create a thick and slightly coarse paste.

Fry the fritter mixture in small batches, turning once, until each fritter is golden brown and firm, about 4 minutes. Drain the fritters on paper towels or on a wire rack; keep warm in the oven until all fritters are cooked.
