Serves: 12 mini or 6 regular doughnuts
 
Ingredients
  • 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
Instuctions
  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!
Notes
- If you don’t have doughnuts pan you can use your muffin pan.
