    BakinBaby's Note:

    Little fried donuts with a tropical flavor of bananas. As an option, I have added crushed pineapple. The traditional panikeke is made with banana and rolled in cinnamon sugar. This recipe has an optional coconut syrup to dip the panikekes in. Posted here for ZWT7.

      Not the way that I really wanted them to turn out (appearance wise), but all in all they were good doughnuts, The banana flavor really stood out . The deep frying of the doughnuts was a nice touch, the preparation of these was a little messy, (though it was probably me), but all in all a very nice treat for a Sunday morning, and a nice challenge for me, first time making doughnuts. Will do these again, as it saves the extra run to the donut shop, Kids loved them.<br/>Anyone wanting to try these please do so, just try not to be unorganized, and messy, as I was. I am petty sure I cold of been neater, but these are worth trying for a brunc, or morning company.
