- 1¾ cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1½ cups mashed banana
Peanut Butter Icing
- 1½ cups powdered sugar
- ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
- 4-5 tablespoons milk
- ¼ pound bacon, cooked and chopped or crumbled
Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and vegetable oil.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, then stir in the bananas. Stir just until moistened.
Fill the donut pan with the mixture about ⅔ full.
Bake the donuts until a toothpick inserted comes out clean - 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
To make the icing: In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, peanut butter and 3 tablespoons of the milk. Continue adding milk until you reach the desired consistency.
When the donuts are cool, frost with the peanut butter icing. Sprinkle on the bacon before the icing sets up.
