Carey, you most have done something incorrect with the recipe because I made it and my kids and I loved it. Try doing it again.

Made these fritters for breakfast and found the batter to be too runny. I ended up using less than 1/3 cup of milk and doubled the flour and got a reasonable fritter. Also as the batter has sugar in it, the fritters have a very dark colour when cooked through so would recommend using a teaspoon instead of tablespoon to make smaller fritters.

Positively wrong, my mother is Jamaican, not only did these blasted fritters stick to the pan, one of em popped grease in my eye! No milk, and at least one egg to boot.

This recipe seemed very similar to the way my mom made banana fritters back home in the Virgin Islands. I did everything according to the recipe except for adding some different dry spices. Unfortunately I was not pleased. This batter is too runny. It splat apart when I spooned it into the frying pan and stuck to the pan. Fritters should be firm, crispy and not soaked with oil.
