Oh my goodness! These were really good! I wish I made a full batch! I had such a craving for doughnuts today, I'm so glad I found this recipe. They were easier to make than I expected. I did mess up a bit and forgot to add the mashed potatoes to the bread machine. So I kneaded it in after it had finished rising. The results were good though. I used a glass and a shot glass to make the hole. Half a batch made 12 nice size doughnuts, and 20 holes. I brought these over to the neighbours and they were a big hit. I definately have to make these again! I'd like to see how long they last next time. I dipped half in melted chocolate and the other half in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. I personally liked the cinnamon/sugar topping the best.
Wow! Outstanding, and delicious! The dough is soooo soft and although it takes time to boil the potatoes and roll and cut the dough, it is well worth it. No greasy fried dough! I glazed some of them and did the cinnamon sugar thing with the rest. I made some smaller and some larger ones. Next time I will boil the potatoes the night before and try a different glaze. FYI - The glaze makes them very soft as they are a little firm when you first take them out of the oven, being they are baked, not fried. I will be making these little babies a lot. Thankyou for posting this gem Chris!
Yup! These are delicious, soft,fluffy, yet with substance. I made with 1/2 c butter and 1 egg- came out great. I used two toppings: cinamon sugar and icing glaze (made with whipping cream, vanilla) The entire recipe was gone in one morning with my teenage sons! Thanks Chris
Holy crap, it WORKED! I made oven donuts! And they were GOOD! I didn't have any normal potatoes so I used sweet potatoes instead, cut the butter back to a half cup and used Splenda instead of sugar. They still came out absolutely wonderful. Tender and poofy, but with that crispy donut crust I would never have expected to get on an oven donut. I am so danged glad I decided to give these a bash. Thanks for a winner, Chris! P.S. Sorry about the picture, my donut cutter is foolishness in physical form. At least they're vaguely donut-shaped.
