super light and airy, and not too sweet. plus, a CUP of sweet potato, some whole wheat flour, and only 1/2 cup of brown sugar makes them uber-healthy too! (from the cookbook "deceptively delicious" by jessica seinfeld)

Recipe Ingredients for sweet potato donuts

1 cup Sweetpotato
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
0.5 cup All Purpose Flour
0.5 cup, packed Sugars, Brown
0.5 cup Milk, Lowfat, Fluid, 1% Milkfat
1 large Egg, White
1 tbsp ICBINB! Light (Soft)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
0.5 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
0.5 tsp Cinnamon, Ground

Recipe Directions for sweet potato donuts

  1. 1. preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). coat a donut pan with cooking spray. (the original recipe calls for a mini-donut pan, which might be easier to use up all the batter on -- i use a regular-size donut pan, which is only 6 donuts. it's easier to fill the pan, but then i have so much batter left over that i end up making 2 more donuts, which is a little inconvenient. i couldn't find a donut pan anywhere in the stores, but ordered one online from amazon. GET A NONSTICK ONE!!!)

  2. 2. in a large bowl, beat together the brown sugar, (pumpkin and) sweet potato puree(s), milk, egg white, margarine, and vanilla. add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spice, and mix until completely incoporated.

  3. 3. pour the batter into a gallon-size plastic bag (or pastry bag if you have one!) and cut the bottom tip off one side of the bag. squeeze the batter through, into the donut mold. (since i have a regular-size donut pan, i just put a dollop or two of batter into each donut mold, and then smooth it out evenly with a spatula. they still turn out to look even and smooth.) bake until the tops are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted, about 20 - 25 minutes. put on a rack to cool.

  4. 4. keep the leftovers in the fridge.

  5. 5. you can decorate with a dusting of powdered sugar, or put a little squeeze of honey on top and let your kids decorate with sprinkles. peanut butter or some sort of cream-cheese frosting would be good too
