Hi folks! It’s another Weekend and we are here to serve you with another tasty recipe from another fantastic location in Africa. Our destination this week is the Portuguese-speaking island nation of Sao Tomé and Princípe, which consists of two main islands (you guessed right!) Sao Tomé and Princípe (the latter is the smaller of the two).

These islands are said to be set directly on the equator and they qualify among the few unspoilt, untouched islands yet to be fully explored in all its magnificence. To see and know more of this island, click here.

Our recipe for this week is simple; it is a classic especially for those who do not need to check their weight on the scales… lol. We will try our hands at making Sonhos de Banana or in English Banana dreams, which are doughnuts with a banana filling.

So, if you like to try new things as I do, whip up your cooking utensils and let’s get to work!



4 peeled bananas

2 tbsp sugar

1 cup flour

½ cup milk

1 egg

1 tsp cinnamon sugar

Vegetable oil


Mash the bananas with a fork and mix with the flour and normal sugar.


flour (1)

Whisk the egg in a bowl and add the milk. When mixed, include the banana mix and make a batter.



In a deep fryer, heat the oil on 350 degrees F.

Depending on the shape you desire of the doughnuts (use your hands or a tablespoon),  drop the batter one ball at a time into the hot oil for about five minutes, turning it halfway so it fries on both sides until golden brown.

Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over your doughnuts.
