 This morning we finally used my donut pan I bought last fall.  I have had this recipe stashed for over 6 months, and this morning I woke up and thought, time to make those donuts.

Are you old enough to remember that commercial?  The one with the Dunkin Donuts guy?  “Time to make the donuts….” as he heads out the door to work, morning after morning.

That is a common statement around here.  My hubby says that a lot of times when he heads to bed early, “I have to go to bed now, I have to get up and make the donuts.”  It’s like that other statement “Bring home the Bacon.” What’s with the breakfast foods? Am I right?

 

Here is the old commercial I am referring to.

 

{updated} Love Donuts? I have MORE!

Ever since I bought my donut pan, I have been loving trying all sorts of donut recipes.  I dressed up these Double Chocolate Donuts for Valentine’s Day, but these chocolate cake donuts, dipped in chocolate glaze are perfect for any time! 

 

Pumpkin gets a bad rap.  Why do people only feel like you can eat pumpkin in the fall?  Well, I challenge you to think outside the box, and bake up some of these Glazed Baked Pumpkin Donuts today!! 

 

For the LOVE of LEMON!! These are amazing!

Are you like me?  Do you love a Cherry Limeade in the summertime?  I made these Cherry Limeade Baked Donuts to pay homage to my favorite Sonic drink.  

My latest donut creation happened this past Valentine’s Day.  Chocolate Covered Strawberry Donuts.  Yes, Please.

I texted my hubby a picture of my donuts, and said “Look! I made the donuts today, too!”  I am sure he rolled his eyes, and then he texted me back his normal “nice” response.  He’s not much of a texter.  

There is a standing joke around here that  when you text him you will get one of two responses.  “K” or “nice.” We like to add our own punctuation to the nice and see how it changes his reaction.

“NICE!” — “niiiiiiiice.” — “Nice?”

He says we are making fun of him… but we aren’t really.  We are truly blessed to have him in our lives.  He has always been an amazing Dad, and husband.  He works hard for our family, and is a wonderful provider.

He didn’t get to enjoy one of these at 6 AM when he left, but I did have one ready for him, still warm, when he came home for lunch.  I knew he would love them, because he loves anything banana!

Maybe this would be a fun thing for you and the kiddos to bake up for your hubby for Father’s Day morning?  I am sure he would love them, with a piping cup of coffee and the Sunday paper.

We love you and we appreciate you every day!

  1. I love to check out your site for ideas when I am looking for some inspiration. Unfortunately, the links to Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter etc, block the content on the left side. It is particularly frustrating with the recipes. I still come back over and over because you have one of kind ideas and great recipes, plus I love the stories attached to them πŸ˜‰

    1. Kara, how are you viewing my site? On a computer, mobile, tablet? When I view it, the icons you are talking about are no where near my photos or the recipe? I am curious if you can help me figure this out? I am glad you enjoy the site, that means the world to me — I want to make your experience better!

  2. I made a few substitutions to make these gluten free and vegan … used an all-purpose gluten free flour mix (Bob’s Red Mill), replaced eggs with flax seed/chia/water mixture, and used rice milk to replace the regular milk. They came out really good and my kids are loving them (and I am happy they love them despite them being healthy). I made 1 doz full sized donuts and 3 fix mini donuts since I had both sized pans.

  3. These are great! I used half AP flour and half wheat flour in mine and texture was still light and fluffy. Tastes like banana bread to me and can see this recipe being very versatile w adding nuts or a glaze. Will make again πŸ™‚

  4. OMG! this recipe is just bananas!! LOL I love baked donuts – cant wait to
    try your recipe – thanks!

  5. I bought a donut baking pan a couple of years ago, but never made donuts in it. I guess it’s time to take it out and bake! Your banana donuts sound and look wonderful!

  6. I made these donuts for breakfast this morning, and I already can’t wait to make them again! So good!

  7. Mmm, this sounds amazing. I love banana bread (who doesn’t?) but what a great way to twist up those flavors! Do you subscribe to Taste of the South magazine? Their January/February 2019 issue has a whole section on all these different ways to twist up the banana bread template: blondies, biscuits, fritters, etc. But no donuts, I have to make yours. πŸ™‚

  8. SO DELICIOUS! I love baked donuts, and would have never thoughts to use banana like this. Perfect for a fun and special weekend treat!

  9. I have tried baked donuts a couple of times and they have never turned out right. Definitely giving these a try, as my daughter loves anything with banana.
