    Aroostook's Note:

    This recipe came from Food TV's, Paula's Home Cooking and are they good! Paula also had a maple icing with pecans but I like'd them better plain. These freeze well and stay moist for several days. A keeper! Thanks, Paula! =)

      A+ recipe! I have made some doghnut recipes before. But these have turned out to be the best so far. I had 1/2 of a large sweet potato to use up. So here was a good opportunity. I did want to try mixing these in my bread maker. And it worked pretty well on dough only cycle. I did have to sub 1 cup soured milk for the sour cream (didn't have sour cream) Still worked beautifully. My family has informed me that i will have to make these again. I don't have a doughnut cutter so I used the alternative instructions and they also worked well. Next time I think I will try a cup of mashed white potatos. These are really that good! Also I used an electric skillet to fry them in since it is more controlled cooking than on the stovetop. Thank you for sharing. A real keeper.
