(banana, jam and nutella)
12 soft dinner rolls (from supermarket)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 large bananas
6 - 8 teaspoons raspberry jam
6 - 8 teaspoons nutella
1 - 2 cups canola oil
in a wide bowl, whisk the eggs with the water until well combined. put aside.
in a wide bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together. put aside.
using a sharp knife, push the knife through the middle of each roll, lengthwise, from end to end but not quite all the way through. you are just making a pocket in the roll.
FOR THE BANANA "DOUGHNUTS"...
cut the bananas in half lengthwise, then in half again so that a piece fits in each roll.
fill a frypan with about an inch of oil and heat on medium high heat.
when hot, dip 3 - 4 rolls (or how ever many you can fit in the pan) in the egg, coating them all over then place them in the hot oil.
fry, turning, to evenly brown each side. remove from pan, shake off excess oil then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
serve hot as they are, or as a dessert with custard or ice cream.
TO MAKE THE JAM OR NUTELLA "DOUGHNUTS", split the rolls as above and fill with a couple of heaped teaspoons of jam or nutella.
cook as above.
NOTE: the amount of bananas you use just depends on how many you wish to make. they are optional. just make the jam and nutella if desired.
