This is a recipe for thick & delicious doughnuts that happen to have a kiss of coffee in every bite! Why? Well because, I was trying to think of something that people enjoy eating with coffee, and the age old stereotype of a cop dipping his doughnut in mug popped into my mind. Perfect! Why mess with drippy messes and coffee stains when you could just enjoy the two as one. Ahhh yes, the TRUE "breakfast of champions."

Step 1: The Dough

To make the dough you will need:

4 cups of STRONGLY BREWED coffee (it needs to be strong because you'll only use a small amount in the dough)
4 medium sized russet potatoes.
2 packages of active dry yeast (4.5 tsp)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup milk
1/2 canola oil
1/2 sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
5-7 cups all purpose flour

NOTE: you will also need a deep skillet/ fry daddy and oil to fry the doughnuts in. As well as a food processor or blender to puree the potatoes.

1. Start by pouring your 4 cups of brewed coffee into a large pot.
2. Peel and cube your potatoes.
3. Throw the potatoes into the coffee and boil them for about  20 minutes. (fork tender)
4. Remove the pot from the heat and scoop out 1/2 cup of the coffee broth and pout it in a bowl.
5. Add the 1/2 cup of milk to the coffee broth to cool it.
6. Sprinkle your yeast on top and stir it in. (Set this aside while you continue to work)
7. Drain the potatoes.
8. Puree them  in a food processor with the 1 cup of milk, oil, sugar, eggs, and salt. (It will look like a giant potato smoothy)
9. Dump the puree into the resting yeast mixture & stir them together.
10. Add 1 cup of the flour at a time until a soft dough is formed.
11. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turn it once to coat the top, then cover and let it rise until doubled (about 1 hour)
12. Punch it down once, cover and let double again (about 30 min)

<p>I was sold just on the title, but the potato dough puts this over the top AMAZING! Thanks for posting! I will laugh every time I make these.</p>
Awesome.. im no cop but i would let you go in exchange of a couple of these
So if you're planning a heist, just set up a table with a few dozen of these about a mile away, right?<br>I'm drooling...
LOL! Just don't point the finger in my direction if you get caught!<br>
