“May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.” ~Irish Toast
First, I want to say thank you to all my friends and family! Your birthday wishes, and sweet words today on Twitter and Facebook mean the world to me! I am so blessed to have such a beautiful family of friends!!!! I want to send a HUGE virtual hug your way:-)
You may be wondering what is TerraFest2012? A fun birthday celebration! My hubby and I believe that a birthday should be celebrated longer than one day. One time we had my birthday celebration for almost a month (because of family and friends that visited!)
This year TerraFest2012 will be a week long. I will be getting some new kitchen gadgets, and a beautiful camera this week, WOO HOO!!!
Today I was in the mood for something different then the traditional birthday cake. Growing up my favorite cake was always banana cake. When I lived in Arizona, you could never find banana cake mix (this was before I really started baking much.) So my Mom would actually send me a banana cake box mix to make for my birthday sometimes. Now I love making homemade banana cake, and made a Banana Pudding Cake a few months ago.
This morning I woke up and decided I wanted banana doughnuts, still a fun splurge treat, but different from traditional cake! I adapted the recipe I used for my Coconut Peanut Butter Doughnuts.
A moist doughnut full of strawberry and banana, topped with a sweet honey glaze!
15 minsPrep Time
10 minsCook Time
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, spray pan with cooking spray.
If you have frozen strawberries, in small sauce pot on medium heat, warm the berries, then mash them. If you have fresh strawberries, use a small amount of sugar to soften them, and then mash them.
In medium bowl mix together banana, strawberries, egg, canola oil, and water.
In small bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Mix together the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Fill doughnut cups 1/2 full, bake for 10-12 minutes.
For glaze I used - 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 3-5 Tbsps half and half, 1 Tbsp natural honey.
This makes about 8-10 doughnuts. I had 6 regular doughnuts, and 12 mini doughnuts. You could omit the egg to make the recipe vegan, add in more banana, they will not be as fluffy, but still very moist.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!!!
Do you see the bracelet on the right on the plate? My Mom made that gorgeous bracelet for me!!!! I just love it, it is so unique and beautiful:-)
Do you celebrate your birthday for longer then a day?
Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,
