Baked Banana Doughnuts

In my previous doughnut post, I was ranting about how I bought the wrong doughnut pan. A week later, I finally bought the right sized pan and was so excited to make these!

The doughnut batter itself is just like a cake batter, really. The ingredients and the process are exactly the same, but still tasted delicious nonetheless. The only issue that I had was the size. Next time, I would have piped a bit more batter into the doughnut pan to give it more height. More height = more bite, meaning happier people!

I used the same nutella glaze that I used in my previous doughnut post. It was that good that I was happy to use it twice in my baking experiments. Enjoy!
