Recipe share. Feather light doughnuts

Feather Light Doughnuts
2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm milk (110 to 115 degrees. 1 cup cold mashed potatoes
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
5 1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cooking oil for deep-fat frying
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add potatoes, 1/2 cup sugar, oil, salt, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and eggs; mix well. Add enough flour to form a soft dough (do not knead). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; roll out on a floured surface to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 3 inch doughnut cutter. Place on greased baking sheets; cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar; set aside. Heat oil in an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer to 350 degrees; fry doughnuts until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels; roll in cinnamon-sugar while warm.
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
