Weekends are for trying new recipes, don't you think? or at least for baking what we'll be eating during the coming week. And this week we have plenty of bananas. A problem/blessing that we have very often. I like to let some ripen until they look like they need to be trashed. Those black ones and squishy give a lot of sweetness and flavor to the baked goods.
These donuts have some of those bananas in the dough. It's a subtle flavor that goes so well with Nutella.
The dough needs to rest twice. One, before cutting and one more time, before frying. For the first resting time, I like to put my bowl somewhere warm, and for me, it's the laundry room. My dough rises very fast there. Another way is to put it in the oven with the light on.
For cutting, use a round cookie cutter, a glass or a lid. Don’t forget to flour it before cutting.
These Nutella Filled Banana Donuts are finger-licking good. They are fluffy and with each bite, the Nutella drips from the donut and ends up in your fingers. Delicious! 😋

Banana and Nutella go so well in these fluffy donuts.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup mashed bananas (150g)
- 1/2 cup whole milk at room temperature (118ml)
- 2 teaspoons dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons butter at room temperature (28.3g)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3-1/2 cups self-rising flour (321.5g)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Nutella
- 3 cups vegetable oil for frying (750ml)
- 1 cup icing sugar (125g)
In a large bowl, add the egg, mashed banana, milk, and yeast. Mix and let stand for 5 minutes.
Add butter, vanilla, sugar, flour, and salt. Mix until you have a homogeneous dough. On a floured flat surface, knead for 10 minutes, or until the dough is smooth.
Put the dough in a large bowl greased with vegetable oil. Cover with film and let stand for 1-1/2 hours.
Roll the dough on a floured surface half a centimeter thick. Use a 7.5 cm round cutter (can be a glass or a lid) and cut the dough. Place the donuts on a cloth and let stand for 30 minutes.
In a deep saucepan, heat the oil over low heat. Fry donuts for 2 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Set them on paper towels.
Add Nutella in a disposable decorating bag or in a Zip-lock bag and cut the tip. With a knife, pierce each donut. Fill with Nutella. Roll each donut in icing sugar.
The rising time depends on how hot or cold your house is. In the winter it can take up to 2 hours and in the summer 1 hour.
If you have an electric mixer with dough hook, you can knead for 5 minutes.
