Gluten-Free Banana Doughnuts
Tuesday's Treat: Banana Doughnuts with Powdered Sugar
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
I played around with the original recipe, of course. My bananas were so ripe and sweet, I cut the original sugar portion in ½ as well as a few other minor modifications. The doughnuts still come out perfect for us.
  • • 1½ C Gluten Free Flour Blend (2 C White Rice Flour, ⅔ C potato starch, ⅓ C tapioca flour, 1 tsp xanthan gum. I usually have a container of this made with about 9 cups of flour in my pantry.)
  • • 1¾ tsp baking powder
  • • ½ tsp salt
  • • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • • 2 eggs, room temperature*
  • • ½ C sugar
  • • 3 extra ripe bananas**
  • • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • • ¼ C vegetable oil
  • • ½ cup confectioner's sugar, sifted
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray doughnut pan with cooking spray. I used 1 large doughnut and 1 mini-doughnut baking pan.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a medium bowl
  3. In another medium bow, mash the bananas and then whisk them with the sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and oil
  4. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into it
  5. Mix until just combined
  6. Pour dough into pans
  7. Cook for about 10 minutes, pull out of the oven and turn each doughnut over in the pan and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until slightly browned
  8. Take out of the oven, cool for 5 minutes in the pan on a rack, remove, sprinkle on sifted confectioner's sugar and serve warm
*If you are like me and don't want to wait for eggs to get to room temperature, you can put them in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes and then crack them open to use in the recipe
**If your bananas are not so ripe that they are soft and extra sweet, add a little more sugar to the recipe. The original calls for 1 cup but when I use very sweet bananas, I don't feel it needs that much.
