  Bananas 2
  Cooking apple 2
  Self-raising flour 4 Ounce (100 Gram)
  Water 1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter)
  Eggs 2 , separated
  Oil 1 1⁄2 Pint (For Frying, 900 Milliliter)
  Sesame seeds 2 Tablespoon, roasted
For the caramel
  Sugar 4 Ounce (100 Gram)
  Water 4 Ounce (100 Milliliter)

1. Cut the bananas into chunks; peel, core and quarter the apples, then cut them into chunks.
2. In a mixing bowl, sift the flour and make a well in the center.
3. Add water and add the egg yolks, then beat in the flour to make a smooth batter.
4. Whisk the egg whites until very stiff, and then fold them into the batter.
5. In a skillet, heat oil for deep-frying up to 190* C/375/* F.
6. Dip the pieces of fruit, a few at a time, into the batter and then cook them in the hot oil until crisp and golden.
7. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
8. When you are about three-quarters of the way through cooking the fritters, place the sugar for the caramel in a saucepan with the water and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
9. Boil the sugar syrup hard until it reaches a light caramel - do not stir it at all once it starts boiling.
10. Place them slightly apart on a large, lightly oiled platter and drizzle the caramel over them, turning them over with a fork to coat the other side in a little caramel.

11. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
