Brown Sugar Glazed Banana Donuts #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com

Hi there.

Am I the only person who gets this serious competitive thing going on when I’m guest posting? Like, I have to win at guest posting, you guys. There shall be no better guest poster than me. I will kick guest posting’s trash and then I will eat a donut.

I mean, that’s what we do after a victory, right? We eat donuts.

Lucky for me, I also eat donuts when I lose. So, you know, I might totally fail this guest posting gig, but I’ll still have donuts, so it’s cool. I will survive.

Brown Sugar Glazed Banana Donuts

I’m sort of the donut queen. I mean, it’s more of a self-proclaimed queen, than a born to royalty queen, but whatever. I’m the queen of donuts, because I say so. I resisted buying a donut pan for so long and then when I caved, man, things got out of hand. Donuts all the time!

I sorta outdid myself this time around. I mean banana donuts are like little circular banana bread loaves, so that’s a win. Brown Sugar Glaze is this ridiculous sticky, caramel coating that will probably make you do the weird food noises. You know, the mmmm and the ahhhh and the grooooooooan.

Brown Sugar Glazed Banana Donuts

Let me recap: I like to win at guest posting, so I brought you guys this ridiculous recipe full of banana, coated with sticky brown sugar, and covered in love.

Mission accomplished?

Banana Donuts with Brown Sugar Glaze {guest post}

Yield: 6 donuts

Ingredients

    For the donuts:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together the sugar egg, bananas, vanilla, and melted butter until well combined. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into the donut pan and bake for 13 minutes.
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
  6. While the donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.
  7. In a small saucepan, bring the brown sugar, water, and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
  8. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  9. Let the glaze cool for a few minutes.
  10. Dunk the donuts in the glaze to coat and remove to a cooling rack. The glaze will be very wet and sticky at first, but as it cools it will thicken up slightly.

    Okay, these look ridiculous, and ridiculous is good! I am going on over to Buns in my Oven now to check out her blog. Nicely done.

    Yum! I hosted Father’s Day brunch a couple of years ago and thought I’d make donuts. I searched everywhere for a donut cutter so they’d be pretty. I made them the day before and they were awful. I even tried a batch of applesauce cake donuts and they were gross too. A lot of donuts and a lot of work went in the garbage that day. Maybe I’ll give it a shot again using your recipe.

    Do you think WW flour would work with these? Its all I have on hand, and I have all the other ingredients, so I obviously need to attempt this! LOL ;) Look sooooo yummy!

      Hi Desirae! I replied to this on facebook, but just in case you didn’t see it or someone else is interested, I’ll copy it here. :)

      I really don’t bake with whole wheat flour, so I’m not sure about the substituting. I’d probably add in a tablespoon of milk OR an extra half of a banana. No idea if that would work, but that’s where I would start.
