Potato Doughnuts

Potao doughnuts

Summer holiday started last week. My daughter has 6 weeks holiday from her playgroup means I can’t take care of my blog very much. I can’t write during the day, because I won’t be able to focus on what I’m writing. In the evening I’ll be too tired to think about what to write.

Anyway, today I’m posting another type of doughnut. This is potato doughnut, but don’t worry, you won’t be able to taste the potato in the final product. This type of doughnut is really popular in Indonesia. One of my aunty made a really yummy potato doughnut (she’s the one who gave me the recipe of this steamed cake too). And what makes it more amazing is, she doesn’t have any bread machine. So she did everything by hands! And still made really soft, fluffy and moist doughnuts. Amazing!

I got the recipe from Indonesian cooking club, unfortunately the site broke down, so I couldn’t attach the link here. This recipe is a keep for me whenever I want moist and fluffy doughnuts. You can also check doughnuts I’ve made before, this doughnut and baked doughnut.

Potato doughnuts


  • 500g bread flour
  • 50g powdered milk
  • 11g dry yeast
  • 200g mashed potato
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 75g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 100ml cold water


How to:

  • In a mixing bowl, place flour,sugar, salt, milk and yeast. Mix. Then add mashed potato, egg yolks and cold water. Knead until half smooth.
  • Lastly add butter and knead some more until nice and smooth. And let it rest for 15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough, weigh 50g each. Or you can also do what I did, I flatten the dough and then use my round cutters to make them. Up to you.
  • Let it rest for 20 minutes again.
  • Deep fry them in hot oil (170° C) until golden brown (around 30 seconds on each side).
  • Once cooled, you can dip them in sugar-cinnamon mix or just icing sugar or top with chocolate and other toppings.

Bonus photo. Here you can see I tried to make something cute for my daughter, but I failed sooo bad. I knew that I’m not good at making cute foods but still wanted to try anyway. And my daughter was still happy about her doughnuts 😀

In this post I also want to wish Happy Fasting to everyone who celebrates Ramadan. We fast for 20 hours here in Sweden. Not that bad, eh? 😀
