  • To make the donuts:

  • Boil the potatoes until fork tender. Set aside the cooking liquid. Push the potatoes through a food mill or mash by hand, leaving no lumps. Measure out 3/4 cup of mashed potatoes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the mashed potatoes with 1/2 cup of flour and the egg.
  • In a small pot, heat the 3/4 cup of potato water, sugar, butter, and salt over low heat until the butter has melted. Stir this mixture into the potato mixture and blend until smooth.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the remaining 2 tablespoons of warm potato water. Add to the potato mixture. Mix in the mace and nutmeg and mix thoroughly.
  • Add remaining flour a little at a time, with your mixer on low and fitted with the dough hook, until a stiff dough forms. Continue kneading until smooth and elastic.
  • Remove dough to a greased bowl and place in a warm spot to rise until doubled in bulk, about one hour.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut the dough with a floured biscuit or donut cutter. (I find this dough to be pretty soft, so I use a biscuit cutter since it's easier to move the full circle around than it is to move around the donut shape.).
  • Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
  • Heat a deep skillet or pot with 2 inches of oil to 375 degrees. Fry the donuts in batches (don't overcrowd the pan), flipping as needed until golden brown on both sides.
  • Drain a paper towel lined plate.
  • To make the glaze:

  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan until warm. Remove from the heat and stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Whisk together to form a glaze. Dunk the warm donuts in the glaze. Let sit for 5 minutes to set.
