by Stephanie Dircks Ashcraft

Makes 12-15 servings

2-1/2 tbsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup mashed potatoes, unseasoned*
2 cups warm milk
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar

*Do not use instant mashed potatoes for this recipe.

Mix yeast, water, potatoes, and milk together.

In a separate bowl, combine shortening, sugar, eggs, and salt. Stir mashed potato mixture into bowl with egg and shortening mixture. Stir in flour one cup at a time. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow dough to rise 45 minutes.

Roll out dough to 3/4" thickness and cut with donut cutter.

Fry dough in hot oil. Turn once, making sure donut is golden brown on both sides.

Divide frosting into 3 small bowls. Add chocolate syrup to one and maple flavor to another. Dip hot donuts into flavored frostings.

For more variety, dip some into a mixture of cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar.
