Fried Banana Pudding
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 teaspoon corn starch
Peel and slice bananas into slightly diagonal slices of varying lengths. Mix flour, corn starch, and cinnamon (I like to use plenty) on a plate. Heat oil in a good-sized frying pan (the bigger, the more banana slices you can do at once, therefore the faster it'll go).
Place banana slices in flour mixture, making sure both sides get covered. You don't want it to be too thickly layered; as long as it sticks, you're good to go. Fry banana in the pan; sprinkle liberally with coconut and keep adding more as the bananas eat it up. If you want, you can add more cinnamon as you go, too. Flip banana slices when they start to brown on the bottom. When both sides are browned and bananas are mushy, you're done!
Optionally, toast some extra coconut in a hot, dry pan and sprinkle over the top, and/or drizzle with a tasty syrup. It would be excellent with some vegan soy ice cream.
If you want to indulge, make it for breakfast, but its definitely a dessert!
