Takes about 60 Minutes
Microwave 1 cup of milk so that it is warm (not hot) add the 5 teaspoons of yeast (2 packets) and a pinch of sugar and stir. Let stand for about 5 minutes.
In a bowl combine flour, mashed potatoes, salt, and sugar.
Then in the bowl add milk mixture and oil.
Mix the dough well by hand or in a mixer with a dough hook for 3 minutes.
Prepare your kneading surface by spreading a few tablespoons of flour on a smooth surface.
Put the dough in the middle of the flour and sprinkle a little flour on top and on your hands. Knead the dough a few times.
Once the dough has been kneaded, spread it out to be a half inch thick with your hands or with a rolling pin.
Cut the dough with donut cutter or dishes of appropriate size.
Place the donuts on a floured pan to let rise as you get the oil ready. Let them rise for a total of ten minutes (it takes about five minutes for the oil to heat up).
Pour about a half inch of oil (vegetable oil) into a pan, heat oil to 360 degrees F.
Test the oil with some of the scraps of dough and when it is ready cook the donuts until golden brown on each side.
Allow the donuts to cool on a rack or on some paper so that the oil soaks off.
