    For the doughnuts
  • 150g flour of choice
  • 100g coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 bananas
  • 100ml milk of choice
  • 2 eggs
  • Few drops of black food colouring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the decoration
  • 50g icing sugar
  • Few drops of food colouring
  • 2-3 tablespoons thick natural yogurt
  • Edible eye
  • White & brown writing icing


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 6-hole doughnut tin.

  2. Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl.

  3. Either mash the bananas well and whisk in the milk, eggs, food colouring and vanilla or simply place in a blender and whizz up until smooth.

  4. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix well to form a batter. Spoon between the donut holes to fill the top and bake for 15-20 minutes until risen. Leave to cool then pop out of the tin.

  5. Mix together the icing sugar with 2-3 tablespoons cold water and a few drops of food colouring to form a slightly runny paste. Add in enough yogurt to thicken a little. 

  6. Spoon over the top of the cooled donuts to cover then arrange edible eyes on top of each. Draw eyebrows using black or brown writing icing then some scar marks with the white. Enjoy!
