Featured Product: Door County Maple 8oz ground coffee


  • 2 cups flour (I use gluten-free with xanthan gum)

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup bananas (very ripe), pureed
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Maple coffee, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Note: For this recipe, you will need a 12-count donut mold. You will also need a piping bag.

Maple Coffee Glaze Ingredients

Mix all ingredients (except walnuts) in a bowl.

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Maple Coffee
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. Brew a pot of Door County Maple Coffee. Measure 1/2 cup and drink the rest.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease donut molds.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Whisk together the pureed banana, eggs, sugar, sour cream, coffee, butter, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Whisk the dry ingredients and wet ingredients together. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. Whisk again until the batter is incorporated.
  5. Fill a piping bag with the batter, allowing space at the top of the bag. Twist the top of the bag to keep the batter inside. Snip a piece from the bottom of the bag to allow the batter to come out. Pipe out the batter inside each mold approximately halfway.
  6. Bake the donuts for approx. 12 minutes or until done. The donut will be firm when gently touched. Remove from the oven and let sit for 15 mins. Gently release the donuts from the molds and let them finish cooling on a rack
  7. When the donuts are completely cooled, mix the ingredients for the glaze. Dip each donut into the glaze, flip it upright, and place it back onto the rack. Sprinkle with nuts. Allow the glaze to dry.

NOTE:I roll the dough out on a 13x18-inch silicon mat for the perfect size. By preparing your pastry on the mat, you can easily lift the mat onto the baking sheet with the pastry on it.
