Using a donut maker these little mini donuts make the perfect treat for little hands.

Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 20 Mini donuts)

  • 125g Softened Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Mashed Banana
  • 1 Cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Custard Powder


  1. Turn your donut maker on and preheat. Alternatively preheat oven to 180 Deg and use a greased mini donut tray.
  2. Mix all Ingredients together as if making a cake.
  3. Pour small spoonfuls in each ring using a soup spoon for better control and cook until slightly golden
  4. Optional: While still sweating dip the donuts in edible glitter. Alternatively ice the donuts with sprinkles.

  • thanks for the clarification in the comments. what a fantastic recipe! thanks for sharing it


  • I love the addition of mashed banana and custard powder, makes for an interesting tasting donut I think


  • Uh oh! Serious yummy alert. Who knew they were so easy to make? Probably best that I didn’t know. I could fall in love with these.


  • I prefer healthier recipes, but thanks for sharing.
    Baked donuts are healthier then fried donuts.
    Mashed bananas, coconut flour, and almond meal can make a super-healthy base for fiber-rich breakfast doughnuts. Dark chocolate and honey can do sweetening, while vanilla extract adds extra flavor. Or what about pumpkin donuts with a maple glaze ? Or ever tried a cashew cinnamon glaze ? so many variations possible with beautiful pure ingredients.


  • Fantastic looking and sounds easy to make. Will do this when the grandchildren come over and they can dip the warm donuts in the sprinkles or glitter.


  • Omg these look and sound delicious fantastic recipe and easy to follow thank you for your ideas


  • I think these would be a big hit with the family.


  • These look so delicious. Thanks for the recipe.


  • If I only had a donut maker!

  • Thank you for sharing!!!


  • Thank you so much for sharing! This looks wonderful! I can’t wait to try it! :D


  • I just read through all the comments and there is no mention of the 1 cup of sr flour! where is the comment?

    • That’s my comment. I’m the author of the recipe. There’s meant to also be 1x cup of sr flour.

      I meant “if you read the comments” as in hopefully if you read the comments you will see the mistake :).

      • Thanks so much . I made them last night without the banana as one lady suggested. I think they would be better with the banana in it as it would give the mixture a bit more moisture. I do not have a do nut maker or a donut tray so I used a silicon muffin tray. I had to add a little milk to make it a cake like consistency as my mixture seemed to dry. They turned out ok, just like little cakes I just logged on and looked at the recipe today and they have added the 1 cup of s.r. flour. I hate to be a pest but can you tell me exactly what the mixture should be like? Is it a bit runny as in your recipe it says pour small spoonfuls . I am going to get a mini do nut tray and get it just right next time. Many thanks for your recipe., kindest regards, Robyn

      • Using the donut machine the mixture is fairly runny but it cooks them very fast. I’m thinking in the oven you would be able to have it thicker because you can control the temperature a bit better. Its slightly runnier than cupcake mix. I always adjust anything I make with milk anyway because depending on the size of the banana, eggs and sometimes even the brand of ingredients it doesn’t always come out a perfect mixture.
