How to Make 8 Irresistible Doughnuts to Kick off Your Weekend!

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.
  10. For S'mores frosting:
    Crumble or crush a chocolate and vanilla cookie and put crumbs on top of doughnut, focusing in the centre. Then drizzle with hummingbird frosting
