Crispy & Soft Banana Katakuriko Donuts

Crispy & Soft Banana Katakuriko Donuts

A different take on the Katakuriko Donuts recipe (Recipe ID: 1457161). Can be made using cake flour and katakuriko without using eggs or butter. The banana in the middle is creamy and delicious.

Ingredients: 8-10 donuts

Cake flour
70 g
30 g
30 g
Baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons
Water (milk is also okay)
80 ml
Frying oil
as needed


1. Cut the banana into about 1.5 cm slices. Place the bowl on a scale and add the powder ingredients while measuring (gross weight + amount).
2. Use a rubber spatula or large spoon to mix well. Add the water and mix in a cutting motion until no longer powdery. Add the banana.
3. Heat the frying oil in a small frying pan or pot. Just enough for the banana pieces in step 2 to be submerged in and quickly float. Prepare a rubber spatula or large spoon.
4. Use the spoon to scoop up the banana pieces, covered in batter, 1 at a time and place in the pan to fry (weak-medium to medium heat). Fry while using chopsticks to turn them over.
5. They cook easily, so they fry pretty quickly. Once they've browned drain them of oil and they're complete.
6. If you'd like to make plain donuts without the banana check out this recipe - (Recipe ID: 1457161). They're crispy, soft, and delicious.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a variation of the katakuriko donuts recipe. I love donuts, and a long, long time ago there was a recipe in a sweets cookbook for banana fritters, so I decided to give this a try.
