½ cup mashed potato
1 inch oil for frying
5 tsp yeast in 1 cup warm milk and a pinch of sugar
2 cups plain flour
½ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Place milk in a bowl, add yeast and a teaspoon of sugar. Allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Mix dry ingredients and potato together, then add milk mixture and oil to form a soft dough. Let stand for 10 minutes. Roll out to half inch thick and cut donut shape. We use a 9cm scone cutter, and then cut the hole with a 2cm cutter. Roll the off-cuts and roll again until you have used all the dough.
Heat oil in pan until moderately hot and fry until golden brown
