Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Donuts
Serves: 12 donuts
  • for the donuts:
  • 1½ cups mashed sweet potato (about 1 large sweet potato)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ⅔ cup avocado (or vegetable/canola) oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • for the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 donut pans (12 donuts) with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In another bowl, combine the mashed sweet potato, sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Using a piping bag (or a large Ziplock bag with the corner snipped off), carefully pipe the batter evenly into 12 donuts molds.
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the donuts in the pan 5 minutes, then remove from pan and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and 1 tbsp maple syrup. Add additional maple syrup until the glaze is smooth and just barely runny.
  8. Dip the cooled donuts in glaze and let sit until glaze sets, about 15 minutes.
