Banana bread baked donuts

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

I haven't shared a donut recipe in a while so here a very good one: Banana bread donuts!

They are covered with dark chocolate and Nilla Banana Pudding Cereal and there's a pinch of cinnamon in here too ๐Ÿ˜Š

Check out the recipe below to discover how I made it.

Spoiler alert: it's super easy!


  • 1 egg

  • 135g light brown sugar

  • 160g sour cream*

  • 90g vegetable oil*

  • 350g smashed banana (3 medium)

  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 254g all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



  1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF (180ยฐC).

  2. In a bowl mix together flour, baking soda and cinnamon and leave it aside.

  3. In a bigger bowl pour oil, salt and sugar and mix with either an electric mixer or an hand whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved.

  4. Add the egg, sour cream and the smashed banana and keep mixing until you get a creamy consistency.

  5. Finally add the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined.

  6. Grease your donut pan with oil or cooking spray.

  7. Pour the batter into the pan with a teaspoon filling up to 3/4 otherwise the donut holes are going to close during the baking process.

  8. Bake for about 12 minutes.

  9. Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

  10. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or on a double boiler.

  11. Glaze the tops of the donuts and garnish with Nilla Banana Pudding Cereal.

  12. Enjoy :)


  • You can use greek yogurt instead of sour cream but the result will be slightly different since the sour cream is higher in fat.

  • You can use 110g of soft butter instead of oil but in this case I suggest to use an electric mixer to prepare the batter.

  • With this batter you can also bake regular or mini muffins or a banana bread loaf.

  • The donut pan I'm using is this one.


If you make it let me know! :)
