Soft baked bananas and blueberries doughnuts

We love doughnuts! Baked and fried alike but I like the baked variety for simplicity and ease of preparation. Baked doughnuts are also a healthier version versus the deep fried ones.

Bananas are easily available and usually quite a staple at home. However, sometimes they ripen faster than we can consumer so I like to use bananas in my bakes too. This baked bananas and blueberries doughnuts recipe is a great way to use up the ripened bananas. Besides, bananas also serve as a natural sweetener that dds a nice flavour to bakes. Adding bananas to the doughnuts also adds moisture to the bake with some natural fragrance.

You may cut and freeze extra bananas for later use, stored in a single layer in sealed containers. There are so many ways to use up bananas (fresh or frozen) – in muffins, cupcakes, banana cakes, smoothies, ice cream, pancakes and more. I used to enjoy those supermarket type of doughnuts that has a more cake-like texture but these are usually just plain with cinnamon sugar coating. Blueberries complement bananas in terms of flavour and texture too. The bananas make the doughtnuts softer and more fragrant while the blueberries add some moist to the bite.

Cinnamon Sugar Coating Option

This recipe was a hit with the family! I baked two recipes, one with blueberries and another with Callebauts dark chocolate chips. All were gone by evening. In this recipe, I added a little ground cinnamon as I omitted the cinnamon sugar dip. You may still have a cinnamon sugar dip if you like, just prepare the sugar and cinnamon prior to step 1 and set aside so you do not have to clean the TM bowl before proceeding with Step 1. While the doughnuts are still warm, dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Chocolate Option:

Notes

Use ripen bananas for a sweeter flavour as the bananas givee this doughnut the softer texture as well as the natural sweetness.  You may adjust sugar to liking but do not reduce by too much.  For a sweeter bake, add 5 -10g of sugar as desired.  
Using dark chocolate callebauts or chocolate chips will also balance out the sweetness of the bake and gives it a beautiful chocolate taste minus the sweetness.  However, you may choose to replace with milk chocolates if you prefer the latter.  Try to press down the blueberries or chocolate callebauts a little into the dough before baking.
