Love to Bake: Izy Hossack's Banana and honey baked doughnuts with almond butter glaze

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes + cooling
  • Cooking time: 20 minutes

Makes: 10


For the doughnuts:
2 small bananas, mashed
1 large egg, beaten
4 tbsp Rowse Light & Mild Honey
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
60g unsalted butter
155g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder

For the glaze:
50g unsalted butter
60g smooth almond butter
1 tbsp Rowse Light & Mild Honey
Handful blanched almonds, chopped 


1.  Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4 and lightly grease a 6-hole ring doughnut pan spray oil.

2. Mix the mashed banana with the beaten egg, honey, cinnamon, salt and melted butter. Fold in the flour and baking powder until just combined.

3. Spoon the batter into the doughnut pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes when the batter is risen and turning slightly golden at the edges. Turn the doughnuts out onto a wire rack and leave to cool. Rinse and grease the pan and repeat the filling & baking process with the remaining batter.

4. To make the glaze, melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and then stir in the almond butter and honey until smooth.

5. Dip the face of each doughnut into the glaze, place onto a wire rack, sprinkle with the chopped almonds and leave to set.
