Ingredients

3 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 c
sugar
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 c
applesauce
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
8 oz
pineapple juice concentrate
1 c
chopped bananas
1 c
frosting
1/2 c
nutella
1/4 c
chopped/sliced almonds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl; add applesauce, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.
2
(Do not beat) Stir in vanilla, pineapple, and bananas.
3
Pour batter into greased doughnut pans.
4
Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.
5
Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
6
For vanilla frosting:
Melt store bought vanilla frosting in microwave for ten seconds, then drizzle over doughnuts

For strawberry frosting:
Repeat same process but add 1-2 drops of red food colouring to frosting before applying to doughnut.
7
For Nutella frosting:
Melt Nutella in microwave with 1 tablespoon iced coffee (mixed with cream and sugar) then drizzle over doughnuts. Nutella may be a little difficult to spread. Top with sprinkles if you’re extra daring!
8
For Rocky Road frosting:
Repeat same process for Nutella frosting. Instead of sprinkles, top with sliced and chopped almonds that are smoked and salted and soaked in maple syrup (not that cheap stuff either; splurge on the good Canadian maple syrup)
9
For Hummingbird frosting:
Using store bought vanilla frosting, add 2 tablespoons chopped banana and mix well. Melt a little in microwave if you need to it be more spreadable. Top with sliced almonds, like in the Rocky Road frosting.
