Seriously- I so wish I could enter- there are so many amazing things in her store.
As you can imagine I am having way too much fun with my donut maker. I love having donuts over the weekend. It sort of makes the weekend just a little more special. It’s especially nice that I don’t have to get dressed, go pick them up & then come home to enjoy them with my coffee. It sort of takes the whole fun out of it & by the time I’m dressed & ready- I’m in the mood to move on. Not sit around & THEN enjoy my coffee. So I really like spending Friday afternoons making donuts so we have them ready for us come Saturday morning.
I don’t know about you- but it seems my bananas are always going south way too fast. The kids actually like me to bake with them more than they like to eat them- so I think they purposely neglect them on the counter hoping that they will become over ripe & I will have to make something with them. Often times it’s just plain ol’ banana bread. But you know- I’m tired of it. So tired of it in fact that I don’t even have any when I make it. The kids eat it all & I’m often looking for something else. So I decided to figure out some new ways to use those over ripe bananas. This time it was in donuts.
I decided after having the coconut on the Monkey Muffins that I rather like coconut with my banana flavored things- so I added it to these.
I made a huge batch of these- I think I had about 50 in the house. They fed us the entire week. So not bad considering how much my kids eat.
Banana Coconut Donuts Recipe
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 sticks + 2 tbsp melted butter
- 4 over ripe bananas
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs- lightly beaten
Pre-heat your donut machine or your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in the center.
Whisk in melted butter, bananas, & milk until combined. Add eggs- whisk until it forms a smooth batter.
Transfer to small pitcher. (it's a bit too thin for a piping bag)
Spray your donut maker or donut pans with cooking spray.
Pour in your batter filling to the top of the pan for the donut maker or 2/3 full for standard pan.
Cook 6-7 minutes in the donut maker or 9-12 minutes in oven for standard sized donuts.
Remove & let cool to a temperature that you can handle them. Dip in glaze & decorate.
