Picture of Spudnuts (Potato Doughnuts)
I grew up in Idaho, and one thing you can get in Idaho, is Spudnuts. Spudnuts are much better than doughnuts.   In Idaho, a spud is a potato, and of course, homemade anything is the best.  This recipe will make 2 dozen, 3 inch Spudnuts. Mine were over 3½ inches so I didn’t get so many.   Let’s make Spudnuts.

Step 1:

Picture of
½ lb. russet potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed (don’t add butter or milk) (Learn how here:  http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Easy-Way-to-Peel-Boiled-Potatoes/)
¼ cup warm water
1 package active dry yeast (2 teaspoons)
¾ cup warm milk (I used ¾ cup warm water and 1 Tbsp. powdered milk)
¼ cup veg. oil (I used olive oil)
¼ cup sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon salt
3½-4 cups flour
Extra oil for deep fat frying
Cooking spray (not shown)

Glaze recipe:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 ½ tablespoons of water
½ teaspoon of vanilla
I was thinking about making sweet potato (yam) spudnuts for thanksgiving but I'm wondering if there would be anything different. Does anyone have any ideas/tips?
