Introduction: Potato Doughnuts (Oven Baked)
A tad healthier than the fried ones :)
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
8 tbsp sugar (1/2 cup)
2 scants tbsp active dry yeast
1 1/4 cup hot milk
4 large potatoes, peel, boil, drain
3 heaping tbsp margarine/butter
4 - 4 1/2 cups flour
2 beaten eggs
a dash of salt
Mash hot potatoes along with sugar, salt, egg, and hot milk, stir until lukewarm then add in yeast, stir well.
Add in flour a little at a time, then knead dough well, cover with slightly damp towel, set aside for half hour or until size doubled. Punch down dough, let rise again.
Punch down dough, roll on a generously floured surface, cut with doughnut cutter, place on baking sheet, cover with the towel again, let rise, and bake at 350 F for 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
Spread margarine/butter, sprinkle with chocolate rice (I used Ritz brand, it's made of real chocolate instead regular sprinkles which usually made of royal icing) OR glaze with your favorite flavor.
Here I used cocopandan flavoring (the pink glazed doughnut) - can be purchased at Asian store or online, plain icing sugar glaze (the white glazed doughnut), and Amarula Cream Liquor (the white glazed doughnut with chocolate sprinkles on them).
