How to make it

  • Potatoes may be cooked in microwave and put in blender.
  • Scald milk, stir in butter, sugar and potatoes.
  • Add flavourings. Sprinkle yeast over 1/2 cup lukewarm potato water. Stir. Mix together with above mixture and beaten eggs.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and spices.
  • Gradually stir flour mixture in, mixing well to make a soft dough. Knead (mixer with dough hook can be used).
  • Let rise till double in buttered bowl, 1 to 2 hours.
  • Punch dough down and roll out on floured board to 0.5 or 0.25 inch thick.
  • Cut with glass.
  • Place on waxed paper, let rise about 30 min. (you can refrigerated overnight for holiday breakfast - take out 1 to 2 hours before frying.)
  • Fry (I use Crisco in a heavy pan.
  • Add 1 Tbsp. water to cold fat.)
  • Test fat by dropping a cube of bread in - if it browns in 1 min. it is hot enough.
  • Fat should not smoke.
  • Donuts can be turned when brown (only once).
  • Drain on absorbent paper.
  • Sprinkle with 4XXXX sugar.
  • Can also be filled with jelly.
  • Plum jelly is the norm but lemon curd or any jam or preserve is good.
