Jill Shramek of Powell, Wyoming adapted a recipe from her Czechoslovakian in-laws to make the dough for these sweet treats in her bread machine. "They are the best baked doughnuts you'll ever eat," she promises. "They're tender and terrific."
Raising eight children on a potato farm in Idaho, Mother was very creative at using an abundant crop. We especially liked her light, fluffy potato doughnuts. We encouraged Mother to let us help make them often. Now I prepare them to share with friends and neighbors.

"The recipe for these golden sugar-topped puffs comes from my mother," writes Pat Klingler from her home in Ashtabula, Ohio. "They are a great way to warm up a cool day. I like to fry them up when I have friends come for coffee."
