Today I bring something sweet after a long time. Hope you would enjoy. After my recent trip to homeland, I pushed myself to break my silence here. It’s more than 4 years of separation from parents I visited to them. I don’t have enough words to explain my joy and happiness. Our time flew away just blink of an eye. My sweetest niece was one of the most important reason to visit India. Oh boy! what a joy of being an Aunt. My mom and sister introduced me to her as an ‘internet aunt‘ who used to talk and see her on Skype. :D She observed me for a some time and gave an affirmation. I was a little skeptical she might not play or respond of my call. I’m glad I was wrong. Come and meet to her below.


My niece, when she was 7 months old. She claps whenever we sing a prayer :)

Now, it’s been 2 months over I am back to the grind. Last week I baked this cute goodies. I bought a mini doughnut pan and baked this. It’s long due and finally tried and tasted. If you are banana cake lover you would like it. If you are peanut butter lover (like me) you would love this even more! Use your muffin pan if you don’t have fancy donut pan.

Banana Doughnuts with Peanut Butter Frosting
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12 mini or 6 regular doughnuts
  • For doughnuts:
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp AP flour
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • ¼ Tsp teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • little less than ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (I used 2 bananas)
  • 1 Tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • For Peanut Butter Frosting:
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp salted butter
  • ¼ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • hot water as needed
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°/180°C. Grease a nonstick, 6 count or 12 mini doughnut pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, egg, mashed bananas, vanilla and the oil.
  2. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Spoon the batter about ¾ full into the prepared pan. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out dry, 12 to 15 minutes; let cool completely on a rack.
  3. Put the salted butter in a small pan and heat over medium-high heat until melted and nicely browned, about 4-5 minutes. Place the peanut butter in a small bowl and microwave until melted & smooth about 30-40 seconds. Add the browned butter to the peanut butter and slowly stir in the confectioner’s sugar.
  4. If your frosting is too thick, add a tablespoon of hot water into the mix. Dip the bottom of your doughnuts into the peanut butter frosting. Enjoy!
- If you don’t have doughnuts pan you can use your muffin pan.
