Phoebe's Donuts

This is a recipe from my grandfather. He died before I was born, so I never got to ask him why they were called Phoebe's donuts. Phoebe, by the way was NOT my grandmother's name.

Ingredients

2 large
potatoes, mashed well
1 c
sugar
1
egg, beaten
8 Tbsp
milk
1 1/2 tsp
melted butter
4 tsp
baking powder
2 1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Step-By-Step

1Sift flour and baking powder together in bowl.

2Mix together the remaing ingredients in another bowl. To this mixture add the flour mixture. It should be a stiff batter and you should be able to make a roll with it. If not, add additional flour.

3Once you have shaped your roll, cut it into 24 slices and deep fry them in fat. Back in the day when my grandfather made these, I am sure they probably used lard. I think shortening or vegetable oil will work fine.

4Place them on a towel to dry. While still hot, sprinkle with sugar if desired.
