Sweet potatoes doughnuts

So I bought myself a little new gadget, a little waffle maker that also has some plates to cook doughnuts in. I love doughnuts and I just couldn't help myself when I saw this little machine.

Last Saturday was Ali 3rd birthday and I decided to test the little thing there and then.

Me been me though, been a children party and all, I try to make the healthier version of those little parcels of heaven.


1 medium sweet potato mash

250ml warm milk

500g flour

1 egg + 1 yolk

1 Tbps instant yeast

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp salt

6 tsp melted butter

For the glaze

150g icing sugar

3 tbsp milk

4 tbsp cocoa powder unsweeten


- Combine the mash, milk, egg + yolk, yeast, baking powder, nutmeg, butter and salt. Mix until you have a smooth mixture

- Add the flour and knead for at least 10 minutes.

- Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Place in a warm place and leave to rise for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.

- Roll out the dough and shape your doughnuts. Then cover them with a tea towel and leave to rise for another 30 minutes.

- In the meanwhile make your glaze, by whisking the icing sugar and cocoa powder together in a bowl and slowly adding the milk, until you have a smooth glaze. You can add a little milk if you need it.

- If you have a doughnut plate like me simply put them in and cook them for a few minutes.

- If you don't, heath up some vegetable oil and fry each doughnut for a few minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.

- Dry on a paper towel.

- Dip each doughnut in the glaze and place on a rack to dry.
