Since My ‘Pumpkin Doughnuts’ was very successful, I wanted to make similar Doughnuts using pureed Banana. Today I finally had a ripe Banana, I made these Doughnuts in the same way as Pumpkin Doughnuts. This recipe is really versatile. It should work with any other food that is pureed into soft paste. I might try Sweet Potato next time.


20 Balls


1 cup Self-Raising Flour *1 cup is 250ml
2 tablespoons Caster Sugar
1 pinch Salt
1 Ripe Banana *about 100g after peeled, 1/2 cup when mashed
Oil for frying
Icing Sugar for dusting *optional, I mixed it with a little bit of Cocoa Powder

  1. Combine Self-Raising Flour, Caster Sugar and Salt in a mixing bowl. Add mashed Banana and mix to form a soft dough. If the dough is too soft, you can add extra Flour, but do not add too much. Allow to rest while you are preparing the Oil for frying.
  2. Heat Oil about depth of 5cm in a large saucepan and heat to about 160°C. As the dough is very sticky, wet your hands with Oil and form 2-3cm balls and carefully drop them into the oil. Slowly deep-fry doughnuts until puffed and nicely browned all over. It takes about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the doughnuts to a tray lined with paper towel or a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough. Dust with Icing Sugar and enjoy. *Note: Today I mixed Icing Sugar with a little bit of Cocoa Powder.
