1 qt. milk
1 c. sugar
1 c. shortening
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 pkg. yeast
1 c. warm potato water
1 c. mashed potato

Mix the above ingredients and let set about 30 minutes or until foamy.

Then add:
4 well beaten eggs
1 tbsp. salt
12 c. flour

Knead, let rise until double in size.  Roll out about 3/4" thick, cut as for doughnuts.  Let rise until double in size.  Cook in hot oil or shortening.  While still hot dip in glaze.

Glaze recipe:
1/2 c. boiling water
1 lb. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. vanilla

If you want to share with alot of the full recipe.  If you just want to share with half the batch.  The full recipe made just over 150 with about 3 doz donut holes.
This is an easy recipe that makes you think you are eating Krispy Kremes.  But, it is very time consuming.  I always make sure Jim is around to help me so one of us can cook them while the other glazes them.

I remember Mom and some of the Aunts making Spudnuts for the elementary Halloween party.  Homemade "SPUDNUTS"  melt in your mouth!  So YUMMY!

*This recipe came from my CD of 1 Million Recipes.

Man those looks so good I can feel the pounds adding as I look at the picture. I need to get a cutter for them.

Seriously those "spudnuts" taste amazing! I am bummed they take so much work to make! I rarely put that much effort into baking but if I suddenly find some energy somewhere, I am totally making these!!

I made these with my sisters last week. I'm so glad you said to half the recipe or we would have been frying them all night :) Very yummy, thanks!
