I found this pin two weeks ago, and after my recent adventures in making doughnuts with red kidney beans, I was intrigued by these Chocolate Potato Doughnuts!

I know, I know, more vegetable doughnuts – I was going to leave this recipe for later in the year, but then I learnt that it was Doughnut Day on the 3rd of June and thought what better opportunity to give these a try.

It felt a little strange to be making mashed potatoes for doughnuts, and I did need to swap out the Gluten Free flour for normal plain flour since I didn’t have any in my pantry and cocoa for cacao, but they were amazingly delicious!! Given the success of the kidney bean doughnuts, I shouldn’t have been quite so surprised, but the texture was so close to “normal” doughnuts. I gave my housemate Lisa one to try and she had no idea they had potatoes in it, but gave it her tick of approval!

Annemarie’s recipe that you can see on her site is both dairy and gluten-free, so I’m going to attempt another batch with Gluten Free flour and egg replacer next time I visit her! I can’t wait to see how it goes, I’ll post here in the comments to let you know, and I’d love you to let me know how you go if you try cooking it in the comments below! 🙂

Happy cooking,
