Italian Doughnuts yum yum!

Hey everyone a while back i made the most delicious Italian doughnuts, that vanished in the matter of seconds as soon as i put them on the table. Before that could happen i put a picture of them up on instagram and a few people asked what the recipe was. so here is the one i used! Enjoy xx

Makes: about 25 (but i got more out of the dough)
300g plain flour (preferably “00”)


50g caster sugar
15g dried yeast
250g desiree potatoes, peeled
25g butter
1 egg
125ml warm milk
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
100g caster sugar, extra

1. Combine flour, sugar and yeast in a small bowl. 
2. Place potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water. Bring to a boil. Boil gently until tender. Drain. 
Push through a ricer into a bowl.
3. While potatoes are still warm, add flour mixture with butter, egg and warm milk. Using your hands, 
bring all ingredients together to form a soft dough. 
4. Roll walnut-size balls into 10cm long sausages. Shape sausages into a doughnut. Place on a floured 
tray, 3cm apart. . Stand, covered, in a warm place, for 30 minutes or until double in size.
5. Combine cinnamon and extra sugar in a shallow bowl.
6. Deep fry doughnuts in small batches. Drain on absorbent paper. Roll in cinnamon sugar.

These are some pictures of my attempt at making them
