Sandy's Mashed Potato Doughnuts

    55 mins

Mashed potatoes make Sandy's doughnuts moist and dense. Roll them in sugar or cinnamon sugar when they're done. 

If you like spiced doughnuts, feel free to add about 2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg and 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 8 cups flour
  • 5 tablespoons baking powder
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying

How to Make It

In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the sugar with the mashed potatoes until the dough is the consistency of paste. Add eggs and beat until well blended. Add 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, milk, flour and baking powder. More flour may be added if necessary.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out with floured doughnut cutter.

Heat about 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil to 370° on a deep-fat thermometer.

Drop doughnuts, 2 or 3 at a time, into the hot fat. Fry, turning once, for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
