slam dunk donuts


D
onuts are not hard to make. 3 cups of flour, two packets of yeast, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 cup of milk, oil for frying. Make the dough, let it rest, cut the donuts let them rise, fry in hot oil, drain. I filled these with jelly, dulce de leche and chocolate dulce de leche - respectively. (See the little hole where I injected the filling?)



Hot soft pillows of sweet delight filled with a surprise, but these donuts have another surprise I didnt mention in the ingredient list and that is a cup of fluffy baked potato. The donut bite is dense but still light and fluffy if that makes any sense and with the spud thrown in it makes these decadent desserts more like a food - in my mind!

I'm having a coffee right now...wish I had one of these ! Excellent recipe...I know I will be back for this in a few days...

Jenn said...

Nice. i never would have thought to add potato into a doughnut. Come to think of it it sort of reminds of those spudnuts from somewhere in the midwest I think..

Anette said...

I'm just making our breakfast now, and we would have loved a few of these on the table! I like the thought of potato as an ingredient! An I almost bought a jar of dulce de leche (HaPĂ„)since we talked about it the other day!

Nicely done. And, good idea to turn doughnuts into vegetables. No guilt.

my first job was dunkin' donuts. i used to eat about a dozen a day. my favorite was teh maple square: a soft pillowy square-shaped donut sliced down the middle and filled with sweet, sweet cream and frosted with a lovely maple frosting. GOD that was amazing.

Marjie said...

That's like my Tweed Cake with mashed potatoes in it. Any time you can fool your kids into eating healthy stuff under the guise of sweet treats is a good day in my book!

Tangled Noodle said...

Pillows of sweet, dulce de leche-filled delights are manna from heaven! I love the secret spud ingredient.

Cynthia said...

I want to make jelly doughnuts for Chanukah. Thanks for giving me a head start on a recipe - a potato huh.

I would love to dunk it!

Bina said...

I love home made donuts! My mom used to put mashed potatoes in her when we were little. Have you ever heard of that? I'm just wondering.

I was going to email you Saturday and ask about Chicken Stew. For the life of me I could NOT remember what I put in it to make the broth thicker.

pinknest said...

Potatoes and doughnuts, two of my favorite things! Hahaha. I made doughnuts the other day, but I baked them. :(

Potatoes + Doughnuts...2 of my favorite things that I never thought would go together. Great recipe!

Chou said...

Ack, that's cruel! Sudden dip in sugar levels. I seem to think I need a donut now.

Esi said...

I've seen so many doughnut posts lately, I am craving them now. These sound great!

Jamie said...

Those are so much prettier than my first try at donuts! Yeah the batter is pretty easy but the frying was tricky. And I think potatoes make every sweet thing come out wonderful! great idea!
