    Baked Sweet Potato Doughnuts

    These easy baked baked sweet potato doughnuts are every bit as tasty as they are easy to make (spoiler alert: They only take 20 minute start to finish). Read all the way to the end for tips on filling that tricky doughnut pan and reviving stale doughnuts.

    Wait, wait, wait, I see some of you moving your mouse towards the back button, but Iím going to need you to stop right there. Sweet potatoes seem to be one of those things that people either absolutely love or loathe. And not that long ago I was firmly in the latter category (Sweet potato marshmallow bake at Thanksgiving? Yeah, I think Iíll pass).

    I couldnít understand the draw to sweet potato fries or anything that involved a casserole dish and a sweet potato. My best friend, on the other hand, was comfortably sitting on the other side of that fence. Iím pretty sure sheíd happily try anything with sweet potato in the title!

    But it all changed for me when she took me out to an amazing little bakery where she, of course, purchased a sweet potato doughnut. Iíd be lying if I said there was no nose crinkling in disgust on my part, but after a little prodding, she finally convinced me to try a bite (the delicious smell wafting over the table from that doughnut didnít hurt either).

    Although that experience didnít completely change my attitude towards sweet potatoes (Iíll still pass on the fries and the casseroles), Iím going to have to eat a little humble pie and say that sweet potato, in moderation, is delicious! So even if youíre skeptical of sweet potatoes, I encourage you, no wait, I dare you to give these baked doughnuts a try!

    Before we dive right into making these doughnuts, Iíd like to take a second to talk about making sweet potato puree, just in case you canít buy it locally or prefer to make it from scratch.

    To make the puree, prick some holes in your sweet potatoes with a fork (this keeps them from exploding in your oven) and bake them at 350F for 1-2 hours, depending on the size.

    You know theyíre done when they feel soft (I usually test this with a fork). Be sure to put something under your sweet potatoes while they bake as they do have a tendency to leak sweet potato juice all over the place.

    Once theyíre cool enough to handle, peel off the skin. It should practically fall off. Break them up a little, and then use a blender to make them into puree. If you want to make sure you have a nice, smooth puree, you can strain your puree through a sieve afterwards.

    I found 3 small sweet potatoes made about 1- 1.5 cups puree. Sweet potato puree can be made several days in advance, and stores very well in the refrigerator.

    The added ingredient of potato doesnít change the overall flavor of the doughnut, much to the surprise of many. Many will mix the doughnuts in with their usual routine of hot chocolate or coffee. The potato donut mix pastry is so preferred that the ube root was used to create the most expensive doughnut the world has to offer. Golden Cristal Ube pastries cost one hundred dollars per spudnut.
