Potato doughnuts

by | Feb 24, 2023 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Potato doughnuts are a delicious and unique variation on the classic doughnut that are loved by many people. Its dough includes mashed potatoes as one of the main ingredients. The addition of mashed potatoes to the dough helps to make the doughnuts moist and tender, with a slightly different texture than traditional doughnuts made without potatoes. I have found the following recipe in Tastes of Transylvania, a cookbook written by Éva Gergely.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

If you are looking for a Hungarian recipe that hasn't been published on this website yet, let me know, and I'll do my best to post it.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
