Dous Beniyè (Sweet Fritters)


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pure fruit puree (well-ripened bananas, mango, apricot, or peach)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • granulated or powdered sugar for dusting


Mix flour, baking soda, and salt set aside.  In a large bowl, mix the mashed fruit with the milk, add the sugar and beat until smooth. Beat the flour mixture into the fruit mixture until smooth.

Heat the oil over medium-high setting and drop the batter by 1/2 Tablespoons into the hot oil.  Do not overload.  Fry until golden, about 1 minute each side.  Use a slotted spoon to remove from the pan.  Place on paper towels to drain.

Sprinkle with granulated or powdered sugar and serve!
