Making doughnuts from scratch sound like an intimidating thing to do, but believe me it's not. These homemade sweet potato donuts are easy and quick to make.. You don't need a video to get the concept.

Just follow the recipe and you'll have perfectly homemade donuts.

One great thing about this donut recipe is that you can fry or you can bake the donuts. They say baked donuts are healthier than fried donuts, but I love my donuts with a bit of oil, don't get me wrong, I hate oily food, I literary throw away my doughnuts when they are oily. I care a lot about my health that's why I use minimal oil when frying donuts, fries, fritters etc. Talking about fritters , I do not any anywhere buy store bought fritters because a lot of times I have bought fritters that contained a lot of oil and I ended up throwing the fritters away. I love my homemade fritters because I make them super delicious yet they have no trace of oil in them, it's the same story with doughnuts. This is the third doughnut recipe on this website , my first recipe was  cream doughnut, the third doughnut recipe was sprinkled with icing sugar, I call it icing sugar sprinkled donut. I tried by all means to make these donuts with less cooking oil, so you do not have to worry about making fried donuts, believe me they are as healthy as baked donuts.


I'll still give you the instructions on how to  bake these doughnuts in case you still don't want them fried 😉

Sweet Potato Donuts Ingredients

Flour: it's All Purpose Flour any day any time, it works great for many of my recipes unless for a few recipes that require the use of cake flour, but this is a donut recipe so yeah we are going for all purpose flour.


Sweet Potatoes : I'll lie to you if I start giving you instructions on how to pick the best sweet potatoes, I personality just buy sweet potatoes as long as they are looking clean and big, or medium size, I don't know if there is a way of knowing if sweet potatoes are sweet or not. You shouldn't worry if you happen to buy sweet potatoes that are not sweet, sugar will be added to the dough so they'll be sweet regardless.


Milk: Whole milk will give you a tender dough, plus it will give you milky donuts. You can also use buttermilk or powdered milk.


Sugar: Granulated sugar or brown sugar will work just okay.


Bread Crumbs & Eggs : The sweet potato donut balls are dipped in eggs then later mixed with bread crumbs.


Oil : Use vegetable oil or olive oil for healthier donuts.
