Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a Wilton 6-cavity Doughnut Twist Pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
  • In another large mixing bowl, beat together 4 tablespoons butter and granulated sugar until well combined. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in bananas and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Alternate beating in dry ingredients and buttermilk into bowl until ingredients are just combined being careful to not overmix.
  • Spoon batter into prepared pan until each cavity is about 2/3 full. Bake for about 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean. Set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, mix together cream cheese, 1 tablespoon butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon milk until well combined. Add additional milk as desired for thinner consistency. Drizzle glaze on top of doughnuts or dip top of each doughnut into glaze as desired.
  • In a small bowl mix together nuts and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of doughnuts.


SNAPPY TIPS: Be sure your bananas are very ripe for best results.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of cinnamon, you could use a combination of other spices such as nutmeg, allspice, or apple pie spice mix. Instead of nuts you could use Wilton colored sugars or sprinkles.
