Mediterranean Doughnuts

3 dozen doughnuts
Prep time: Cook time: Total time:


  • 1 TB. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 TB. sugar
  • 1 large potato, boiled, peeled, and mashed

  • 4 cups Simple Syrup (recipe in Chapter 22)


In a large bowl, combine yeast, warm water, and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Spoon up about 2 tablespoons dough mixture, drop into hot oil, and fry for 2 or 3 minutes or until dark brown.

Spoon out doughnuts from Simple Syrup, and place on a plate. Serve at room temperature.

Mediterranean Morsel
Potato might seem an odd ingredient to have in a dessert recipe! Here, it helps make the doughnuts a bit more dense and also acts as a binder.
