Still on potato and this time, donuts. Or doughnuts? Potato Donuts
The recipe is from my mother that she often made when I was small cute kid.
I like small donuts too!
Because I think that the small one more comfortable to eat than the jumbo one. I mean I feel comfortable to devour ha..ha..ha..
Do you like some? Come to my home and we enjoy them with a hot drink !
Eat two mini donuts will not make you bigger, unless you gobble up a dozen of them at the same time.
Well let’s make it.
These ingredients make about 20-22 pieces mini size and less if you make bigger size.
Ingredients A :
- 2 medium potato, boiled, mashed evenly
- 300 g flour, separate half-half
- 1 sachet dried yeast, dissolve with 50 ml warm water
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp milk powder ( I used coffee creamers)
- 2 eggs
Extra flour for kneading
Ingredients B :
- 2 tbsp butter ( I used margarine ), melted
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a large mixing bowl, mix together ingredients A, use a half (150 g) of flour.
I mixed it with a wooden spoon into sticky dough. Cover with a towel and let rest warm place for 30 minutes (first rest). I put near the window with bright sunlight.
After 30 minutes and the dough rise, add ingredients B and the rest of the flour to the dough.
Knead until smooth and elastic, if still sticky please sprinkle with extra flour as needed. Potato dough will make it more sticky than just flour dough.
After the dough smooth and elastic enough, cover again and let rise for about an hour (second rest).
After rise for second rest, roll out the dough with a rolling-pin on floured work surface. Cut into circular shape and make small hole in the middle.
I used glass rim to cut the dough and make the hole in the middle with bottle cap. I don’t have donut mold. Do you see a yellow bottle cap in the top corner?
Fry in plenty of oil with medium low heat. High heat will make donut burst or broken.
Flip them to have evenly golden colour. I fried them in few batch.
Place fried donuts on paper towels to release excess oil. Let it cool.
Make topping as you like. I made some chocolate glaze then sprinkle with chocolate and coloured sprinkles, some with powder sugar.
The fact is, my husband Big Bear, came home from work and he had finished five pieces.
Yumm…the texture was perfect! Puffy!
Crisp outside and some small hollow inside. Enjoy with hot drinks.
