Recipe for family meals :

Mexican Fried Chocolate Bananas

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 flour tortillas
2 very ripe bananas, peeled and cut lengthwise in half
6 ounces Mexican chocolate, grated
Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish


  • In a bowl whip the cream until soft peaks begin to form.
  • Add the sugar and cinnamon and whip until it just forms stiff peaks. Place in a decorative bowl.
  • Place a tortilla on a work surface. Lay 1/2 a banana down the center of the tortilla and top with 1/4 of the chopped chocolate.
  • Paint the edges of the tortilla with water on your finger. Fold the edges tightly toward the center, and seal with wooden picks. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  • Heat the oil in a deep sauté pan to 360°F.
  • Carefully slip the filled tortillas into the oil and cook, turning, until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Serve the dessert tortillas with the sweetened whipped cream on the side for dipping.
