Fried Bananas from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Hello, Gameress friends! Astaldien back again with another sweet & simple recipe you can enjoy while you stealth-shot Daedra lords or after you get your third championship in a row for executing your ultimate ability at just the right time. This treat is especially good with breakfast - add to waffles, pancakes, or yogurt for a special topping! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even eat these by yourself or share them with a friend.

Today’s blog inspiration once again comes from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (ESO, WoW, Skyrim, and you others - you’re next!). As Fall approaches, I figured I would share another short & simple recipe before Winter’s festivities whisk us away into the world of pies, campfires, and hot cocoa. Big things are coming to our dessert world soon, so you don’t want to miss them!

Today’s main ingredient is one of the most important tropical fruits out there: bananas! Luckily for us, Breath of the Wild has a recipe for “Fried Bananas” that we’ll take and turn into deliciousness with just a few short steps. According to Breath of the Wild’s Wiki guide, you need Mighty Bananas, Cane Sugar, and Tabantha Wheat to make Fried Bananas. But for us humans on earth, we need:

  • 2 bananas
* Tip: Use bananas that have JUST turned ripe, or bananas that are still slightly green. You don’t want to use an overripe banana, because it will be too mushy to fry properly.
  • 1 tbsp of butter 
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula
1. Cut your bananas. You can use one or two bananas, or however many you’d like! In order to make it look as close to the game as I could, I cut my banana horizontally and not vertically. This means you’ll have to do a single cut so the banana splits in half. If you’d prefer smaller, bite-sized pieces, feel free to cut little slices instead!
Here’s a picture of what I mean:
On the left, we have our banana split horizontally. This makes it look closer to Breath of the Wild’s “Fried Bananas.” On the right, we have smaller vertically cut bite-sized slices. These are much easier to eat while you game! 

2. Combine the honey, cinnamon, and butter into the frying pan over medium heat. Mix together until it looks about even.
* Tip: If you even feel like using low heat to ensure that the mix doesn’t burn, feel free to do that too!
3. Add your banana slices and cook them for about four minutes, or until the bottom is a nice golden brown. After four minutes, flip the banana over and cook them for an additional four minutes.
* Tip: Watch the heat and temperature here! You wouldn’t want these to burn.

Here’s a photo of the finished, golden product:
4. Enjoy by themselves or over warm waffles. I immediately put these guys over some mini-waffles to enjoy them with syrup. They were delicious!
That’s all, folks! Tune in next time as we’ll begin to create special delicacies for Fall festivals and Winter carnivals. If you have a suggestion for a special game recipe, leave them in the comments below, or join our Discord to share it with me directly!

Astaldien over n’ out!
