baked banana donuts with chocolate frosting.

Posted by

I decided to turn banana bread into donuts! There’s something so satisfying about making your own desserts – it’s even more fun to eat them when you create them yourself. Cover these donuts and chocolate frosting and you have yourself a delicious treat!


for the donuts:

  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 & 1/4 cups Kodiak Cakes buttermilk mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted

for the frosting:

  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted over a double boiler
  • half and half – for consistency


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, add mashed bananas, egg and vanilla.
  3. Mix together until combined.
  4. Add brown sugar and mix.
  5. Add Kodiak Cakes mix and baking powder and mix until mixture is smooth.
  6. Add melted butter and mix until combined.
  7. Grease a donut pan and fill 3/4 the way full with batter.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until toothpick comes clean.
  9. Let donuts cool on a cooling rack – meanwhile make the frosting.
  10. In a medium-size bowl, mix butter. melted chocolate and vanilla together.
  11. Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder and mix – adding half and half until mixture is smooth – not watery and not too thick. (You want to be able to dip the donuts in the frosting)
  12. When donuts are cool, dip them into the frosting and use a knife to coat the whole top of the donut.
  13. Add sprinkles and ENJOY!
