Original Potato Donuts




I never really try to make bread or donuts with my hand, its too hard to knead them, but since i bought a new standing mixer, i wanted to make any kind of bread or cake everyday ^_^. I don't have to work so hard, to create snack for us ... Yeaah.. So this is my first trial with my new 'mate' , its a good snack for toddler too.
I only put icing sugar for coating my donuts, but you can always put any sprinkle you want for topping, next time i will put different kind of toppings. Here is the recipe...
Original Potato Donuts
  • 3 medium size potatoes (i used 450 gr)
  • 250 gr plain flour (i used 350gr)
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 2 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon margarine (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon full cream milk
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Icing sugar for coating
  1. Boil potatoes,drain and mashed, cooled.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, and knead for 10 minutes (or more) .
  3. Place dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  4. Stand in a warm place for 45 -1 hour.
  5. Knock down dough and turn onto a lightly floured board.
  6. Cut dough in half and knead each piece for 5 minutes.
  7. Roll one piece out to 1 1/4 cm thick. Cut 8cm circles with a biscuit cutter.
  8. Using a 4cm round cutter, cut out centre of each circle to form donuts. Continue with remaining dough.
  9. Half-fill a frypan with oil. Heat over medium heat until oil is hot. Add 2 to 3 donuts at a time, cooking for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden
  10. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Toss donuts, one at a time, in icing sugar until well coated..
