2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup (155g) self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Fit the food processor with the work bowl and multipurpose blade. Add the ricotta, bananas, sugar and vanilla. Using speed 1, process for 5 seconds or until smooth.
Add the flour, baking powder, spices, eggs and lemon juice. Using speed 1 process about 6 seconds or until well combined.
Heat a large heavy based frying pan over a medium low heat. Add a large knob of butter and swirl to coat pan. When butter is hot and foaming add ¼ cup amounts of the mixture. Cook about 3 minutes each side – turning carefully with a slide. Set fritters aside and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter and mixture.
