Waste not want not.
I found the recipe online given by Marilyn Kleinfall of Elk Grove Village, Ill. She says that her neighbors mother-in-law originated it.
Here is my version:
1/2 C. mashed potatoes (made with milk and butter)
1/4 C. sugar
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 C. sour cream
1/2 t. Tahitian Vanilla
1 1/2 C. all purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
sprinkle of nutmeg
Oil for deep frying
Powered sugar or cinnamon sugar, optional to coat while warm.
Using a large bowl combine the potatoes. sugar, egg, sour cream, and vanilla.
Mix until smooth. Combine the dry ingredients and stir into the potato mixture to form a stiff batter.
