Will this weather ever straighten itself out?
We have had too many cold, dreary days to my liking!
Today was no exception.
So what do you do on a day like today?
Of course, bake!
I came across a recipe the other day for banana bread donut holes.
It described how you could make them in your electric cake-pop maker.
Well I didn't have one of those, but I did have one of these,
A silicone cake pop pan, plus 2 over ripe bananas just begging to be used up.
I mixed all of the ingredients together,
and baked them in a 350.F oven for about 17 minutes.
The recipe called to roll them in cinnamon and sugar
hot out of the cake pop maker.
When they came out of the oven I popped them out of the pan and did just that.
They sure didn't look like donut holes!
More like donut acorns!
Then I remembered, I have an electric mini donut maker somewhere around here.
Lets give that a try!
In no time I had a pan of mini banana bread donuts!
They sure looked better than the other ones!
When the daughter stopped to drop little man off,
I sent a few bags full for her to share at work.
And the rain stopped long enough for me to venture out
and pick a big vase full of lilacs!
I will pass along the recipe for the banana bread donut holes.
They are actually very moist and tastey!
I will let you decide how they will be baked!
