Next time you whip up banana bread, pipe the batter into your donut pan for a delightful treat glazed in chocolate and sprinkled with salted peanuts.
I picked this recipe, because it is so easy to put together. You do not need a mixer. All you have to do is to mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, scoop the batter into your donut pan, and bake them for 15 minutes. It is made with whole-wheat flour so it is tiny bit healthier. I think they were just fine by themselves to server with my morning coffee, but the chocolate glaze and salted peanuts took them to another level of deliciousness. Still, if you decide to eat them without the glaze, I bet a little cream cheese and jam wouldn’t make them taste too bad.
Finally, on my first try I spooned the batter into the donut molds, but then I read somewhere that it would be much easier to pipe the batter into the molds using a Ziploc bag or a pastry piping bag. I immediately tried the piping method and it was not only much cleaner to fill the molds, but also much easier and quicker.Print
