Banana Velvet Doughnuts
2 1/2 c Flour
2 1/2 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 c Honey
2 tb Butter or margarine
1/2 c Sour cream
1/2 ts Vanilla
Fat for deep frying
Sift together dry ingredients. Beat eggs until light. Add honey gradually and
continue beating until well mixed. Beat in mashed banana, butter, sour cream and
vanilla. Stir in flour mixture. (Dough should be soft.) Chill 2 hours or longer.
Roll out on floured board about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with doughnut cutter.
In deep fat heated to 370 F, fry a few at a time. (Fry the
holes as well as the doughnuts.) Turn doughnuts when they rise to the surface
and are brown on the underside. Fry until brown on both sides. Remove from fat
and drain thoroughly.
Note: May form into long rolls and twist together to form crullers, cutting off
every 2 inches.
