Step 1

Peel the bananas and cut them into half. Insert a toothpick halfway into each banana and set aside.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix together maize meal, all purpose flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon powder.

Step 3

In another bowl mix together egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until it forms a slightly runny batter.

Step 4

Dip the banana into the batter and hold into hot oil. Let fry for 5 seconds and then drop the stick into the oil. Deep fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 5

Bake for 35 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Step 6

Remove the toothpicks, garnish with chocolate sauce and serve.
