Glazed caramelised roasted banana bread drop doughnuts

  • 3 large ripe bananas, cut into 2cm slices
  • 30g cold butter, cubed
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 245g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 60ml double cream
  • 60ml soured cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips
  • For the glaze
  • 80ml milk
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 260g icing sugar
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Place the sliced bananas into a small baking dish. Top evenly with cubed butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and bubbly.

2) Remove and coarsely mash with a fork, still leaving chunks of bananas. Set aside.

3) Heat 7.5cm of oil in a large Dutch oven or large deep-fryer over a medium heat, to 180C.

4) In a large bowl sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt; set aside. Gently whisk the double cream, soured cream and egg until just combined. Slowly stir the banana mixture, cream mixture and cinnamon chips into the dry ingredients until just combined.

5) Using a medium scoop (holding approximately 1 1/2 tbsp), scoop the dough in batches and carefully drop into the hot oil, about 8 at a time. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes turning frequently, or until golden brown.

6) Transfer the doughnuts with a skimmer onto a kitchen paper-lined plate to drain, until all have been fried.

7) In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, mix the milk, butter, and vanilla until the butter is melted. Slowly add sugar, beating until the glaze is smooth. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze, turning to coat, and carefully transfer them to a large sheet of greaseproof paper to dry.

8) Serve the glazed doughnuts warm or at room temperature.
