Oil for deep-frying
Extra All-Purpose Flour for dusting


Boil the sweet potatoes until soft and cool completely. Mash and mix with all the flours and salt. Divide the dough into 12 portions. Shape into doughnut rings and dust with some flour.

Deep fry the doughnuts over medium heat until golden brown. Drain the doughnuts and set aside.

Boil the sugar and water until a thick syrup consistency are obtained. Toss in the fried doughnuts into the sugar syrup until well coated. The sugar will crystallize once it cool down.

  1. Doughnuts are such a sinful but delicious treat... if I make these, I'm sure I won't be able to stop at one!

  2. we tried with tapioca starch but it didn't work... the whole dough became sticky and no matter how much all purpose flour we used, it remained sticky. any idea why??

  3. You have to let the sweet potatoes cool down completely, and make sure to knead the dough lightly.
