Samoan Banana Donuts

Who doesn’t love a good donut once in a while? Sitting on a terrace or a porch (if I had one) on a warm Spring day with a cup of coffee, a delicious sweet treat and a good book is an idyllic way to spend a lazy Sunday morning. Days like this newspapers are not allowed. Who wants to fill their head with depressing and tragic news to destroy the paradise?

Until I get the house with the terrace or the porch…I can dream, can’t I?

Here are 5 delicious donuts I’ve whipped up for those of you to indulge in my scene…if you’re lucky enough to have the porch…

Ube Donuts with Coconut Glaze
These Filipino inspired donuts are made with the sweet purple yam that is the main ingredient in many Filipino desserts. These instant donuts can be whipped up within an hour.

Yuca Donuts
I saw these donuts on an episode of the Travel Channel’s Street Eats and this was my attempt at recreating them. Before I purchased my DSLR, these photos really don’t do them justice.

Banana Mandazi
Mandazi are donuts that are popular all over East Africa in countries like Kenya and Tanzania. This banana version is the most popular flavored type, after the plain ones.

Samoan Banana Donuts
This version from Samoa is low in sugar content so a perfect indulgence for breakfast. Topped with a coconut syrup, they are indeed very hard to resist.

Stuffed Donuts

These donuts stuffed with walnuts, sesame seeds and Middle Eastern spices is the best tasting donut from the lot. However, these are classic yeast risen donuts, therefore will take some extra planning to have them ready for breakfast. Someone is going to have to volunteer to wake up early and these will be ready for brunch.
