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.
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
