For the Donuts:

  • 1 1/2 cups ripe bananas, mashed (about 3-4 medium bananas)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions: For the Donuts:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a donut pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, stirring until just combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into the greased donut pan, filling each cavity about two-thirds full.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean.
  7. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


For the Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  2. Once the donuts are completely cooled, dip the tops into the glaze and place them back on the wire rack to set.


  • Add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter for extra texture and flavor.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon or banana chips on top of the glaze for a decorative touch.


Q: Can I make these without a donut pan?

A: Absolutely! Spoon the batter into a muffin tin for banana bread muffins.

Q: Can I freeze the donuts?

A: Yes, freeze them without the glaze and add it after thawing for the best texture.
