Nutella Stuffed Banana Donuts

June 8, 2018

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! 😋

  • 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)
  1. In a large bowl, add the egg, mashed banana, milk, and yeast. Mix and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Put the dough in a large bowl greased with vegetable oil. Cover with film and let stand for 1-1/2 hours.
  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

Recipe Notes

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.

    1. ☺️ Thanks! we have so many bananas, that I’m always looking for new ways to use them. I hope you try them!

  1. Lizet these sound absolutely gorgeous! Our ripe bananas usually get frozen for vegan ice-cream but I’m thinking the boys would love these (I might try veganising them too). Thanks so much for co-hosting and I love your write up about the Fiesta (everyone should write that so the rules get followed)! 😀 Enjoy the party (and my totally new website)!

    1. Hey Laurena! we love the frozen banana ice cream too. We eat it all year around. Love it that it doesn’t have any added sugar 😌It’s been fun co-hosting this weekend. I’m glad you found the little note helpful.
      Your new website looks great! easy to find recipes.
      Thanks for coming by!

      1. Ooo…. what’s your favourite flavour of banana ice-cream? I love caramel or mixed berries! Thanks for your website comments – it’s taken me so long but at least now it’s done I can help Angie with co-hosting again! 😀

      2. My favorite’s peanut butter and cocoa powder. But I really like raspberries and chocolate too.
        I so understand taking so long for the blog to be ready. I’m still working on mine. Let Angie know you’re ready to co-host!

    1. Thanks Cat for stopping by! Yes! so fluffy and so delicious. Sending some your way 🍩🍩

  2. I always ripen the bananas for banana bread and muffins. I have never tried making donuts with bananas, but it has to change now. Plus, I love Nutella!!! Perfect combo! Thanks for bringing these with you, Lizet. Enjoy co-hosting and happy Fiesta Friday!

    1. Hi Jhuls! yes, bananas and Nutella are so good together. Maybe skip all the cooking and eat those two together 😉
