baked banana doughnuts with nutella glaze

Back to the doughnut pan! Since I went pretty basic and classic my first time around making doughnuts, I decided that this was the time to go over the top. It was a good call, I believe.

The cake part of these doughnuts is really great! But with that Nutella glaze on top...woah. The rainbow sprinkles are optional/totally not optional.

Let's make doughnuts again!

Baked Banana Doughnuts with Nutella Glaze (from i am a food blog)
makes 6 doughnuts

you'll need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 banana, mashed
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Nutella
3 tablespoons heavy cream
sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease your doughnut pan and set aside.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, egg, banana, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and stir until just combined.

Transfer the batter to a piping bag (or, if you're like me, a plastic bag with the corner snipped off) and pipe batter into the doughnut pan, filling each one about 3/4 full. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow doughnuts to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, whisk together the Nutella and heavy cream, adding more heavy cream if necessary to thin it out. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze and top with sprinkles!
