DIRECTIONS

  • Reheat mashed potatoes.
  • Stir in the butter or shortening into the potatoes in a small bowl.
  • In mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar 3-4 minutes until eggs are pale yellow.
  • Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla.
  • Stir in the potatoes.
  • Stir in the flour, baking powder and soda, salt and nutmeg.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and roll to ½ inch thickness.
  • Cut with a donut cutter.
  • Add the oil to 2 inch depth in a deep skillet or Dutch oven. (I like cast iron because the temperature stays constant).
  • Heat oil to about 350 degrees.
  • Fry donuts in batches but do not crowd in pan.
  • Turn once until both sides are browned about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
  • If desired you can roll in sugar or cinnamon sugar or glaze.
  • These are best served warm.
