Fried Bananas

1/2 cup flour
2 Tbsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking powder 1/2 cup water
2 bananas
oil for frying

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup warm water
1 Tbsp oil

Combine flour, cornstarch and baking powder. Add water and stir
until smooth. Peel bananas and cut into thirds. Place in batter
and turn to coat. In a deep pan pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2". Heat
to 350 degrees. Place batter covered bananas into the hot oil and
cook until coating is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove and
drain on paper towels.

Spray a cooking tray or plate with cooking spray. Fill a serving
bowl with ice and cover with water.

For caramel topping: Place sugar, water and oil in a large skillet,
stir to blend. Place pan over high heat. When mixture begins to
bubble, shake pan continuously to prevent burning (Do not stir).

Continue until syrup just turns a pale straw color, approximately
9 minutes. Immediately remove from heat. Syrup continues to cook
and will turn golden in a few seconds. Drop fruit into syrup and
swirl to coat evenly (you need to work pretty fast at this point,
and get the fruit in and out of the caramel, cause it's starting
to cool and set up). Place fruit on greased plate so pieces do not
touch. Dip each piece in ice water so coating hardens and fruit
