It is that time of the year when perhaps we have more guests around the house. Some of them maybe stay overnight, therefore we have more meals to prepare. 

This recipe of easy banana doughnuts is an awesome way to use ripe bananas that are sitting around. It is also a great recipe to put together for a brunch. It is a fast snack to make while they are around.

 I remember visiting my grandma, when I was a child. She would disappear in the kitchen and come back later in the living room carrying always a platter of either doughnuts or crepes that she would make in no time.

I do not remember anything better than these treats at her house and how happy she was to make them for us.

One thing I want to stress. Lately, people are moving away from the way their ancestors used to eat. Nothing wrong with that, except that not everything they ate was bad for us.

This blog is about foods that I grew up with, easy, simple recipes that I love to share with you. I am, personally, very into the way my previous generations used to eat.

Lots of foods in United States are so conveniently cheap, that many of us do not care what is in them anymore. Call me obsessed, but I saw the regular labels for doughnuts and I got scared.

Probably 90% of the ingredients are chemicals that are hard to pronounce. Nothing from these doughnuts is healthy, which made the doughnut in general to become a food that everyone thinks is evil to eat.

I am all for eating healthier but I think we need to have everything in moderation in general. These doughnuts are fried, yes, but if you think about the ones you buy at the grocery store, I prefer a good homemade fried doughnut anytime.

I know, I am no fun at all!

how to make these easy banana doughnuts:

  • First, we will take care of the dry ingredients. Grab a mixing bowl and combine together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt.
  • Separately, we will take care of the wet ingredients. Combine the eggs, milk, olive oil and vanilla. Beat lightly.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ones and mix together.
  • Mash the bananas with a fork and add them to the batter.
  • Heat up oil to a temperature between 360-375F. The best way to find out what temperature you have in the pot is to get a thermometer.
  • Using a tablespoon, pour the batter in the oil and let the doughnut cook for about 2 minutes on each side until brown.
  • Remove from the pan and drain them on paper towels.
  • Tip: Do not crowd the doughnuts in the pan. 3-4 doughnuts should be enough for one batch.
  • Serve them hot or cold dusted in powder sugar.
