A couple months ago a reader asked me for my potato donut recipe. As you realize, I have not been posting on this blog very much at all. Life has taken over and I haven't taken the time to write. I am HOPING to change all that, but I'm not making any promises. Please keep checking back, though....you never know, there may be something interesting you might miss ;)
2 Cups flour (I use unbleached white, but sometimes sneak in a bit of freshly ground spelt)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder
Combine the above in a bowl
1 Cup mashed potato
1 Cup sugar (I use turbinado which is a 1:1 exchange with white sugar)
Mix these 3 ingredients until smooth
Add the dry to the wet, mix until smooth dough
You will need A LOT of flour to roll it out on. The dough is sticky.
On floured surface, roll dough to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut. Makes 12-15 depending on how thick you roll your dough.
Fry in hot oil (sorry, I don't know the temp of the oil. I pop a hole in the oil, if bubbles form around it, I know the oil is ready)
Do you have a potato donut recipe? Is it different than mine?
If yes, please share your recipe in the comments.
Anyone know of a good BAKED donut?
