Potato Doughnut

Nothing beats the sizzling-hot-from-the-fryer homemade donuts! It is easy to fallin love with doughnuts. But no matter how tasty branded doughnuts out there, this simple potato doughnuts never fails to entertain my family. My kids prefer this dougnuts, rather than the one we usually bought at the mall. Happy happy me! 

This doughnut is incomparable with branded one. As there is a super duper special ingredients. Which is : L O V E. My eldest son,who is now 8 years old, cannot forget the first time he tastes my homemade doughnuts. And he remembers how he enjoys eating doughnut while it still warm. The sweet sugary topping is his alltime favorit. He never interested to try the chocolate topping, choco rice and so on. Powder sugar and only powder sugar. That is it. As for me, I like to add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder to the powder sugar. More aromatic!

I am making these beauties with my younger son, he is 3 and 1/2 years old. So pardon me for some ugly looking doughnuts. He is so excited to make dough balls! Some of it were quite circle, some looks like a whole different shape....:D It took patience for me to set it back to circle, haha.

Recipe Taken from NCC


500 gr   bread/pizza flour
50 gr     milk powder
11 gr     dry yeast
200 gr   potato, steam until tender, and mashed until soft and no more lumps.
100 gr   sugar
75 gr     butter
½ tsp    salt
4 egg yolks
100 ml   cold water (if you not using milk powder, cold water can be subtitute with fresh milk)


I use bosch mixer. Mix flour, sugar, dry yeast untill well mixed. Add in the potato and water/milk. Set to speed 3. Keep kneading until abit elastic. Add in the margarine and salt. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic and doesnt stick to the bowl.
Let sit for about 15 minutes or until dough doubled the size. Covered with damp kitchen napkin.

Punch the dough, divide into balls of 50-60 grams each. Depending on how big you want your donuts. Let sit for 15-20minutes. Pin the center to make the whole, or you can use donuts cutter to make it easy.

Heat the oil in the pan. It is a bit tricky to fry. Make sure the oil is hot enough, use small heat! You don't want to eat half done donuts. When you use medium heat, the skin is already brown before they are fully done. Avoid flipping the donut over and over again. It will cause the donuts oily. Wait until one side is golden brown (about 3-5 minutes ) take a peek and flip. Apply the dusting.

Ready to serve.
