Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy saucepan to 375º. Mix the eggs, milk, brown sugar, flour and baking soda in a medium-sized bowl. Add the banana slices a few at a time, coating them well with the batter. Remove the slices with a slotted spoon or fork and place them in the hot oil, being sure not to crowd the pan. Fry the bananas for 2-3 minutes, until lightly golden brown, turning them once. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm in a paper cone, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
