    2      cups          hot mashed potatoes (mashed with milk
                         and butter)
    2 1/2  cups          sugar
    2      cups          buttermilk
    2                    eggs  -- lightly beaten
    2      tablespoons   butter  -- melted
    2      teaspoons     baking soda
    2      teaspoons     baking powder
    1      teaspoon      ground nutmeg
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    6 1/2  to 7 cups     all-purpose flour
                         Cooking oil
                         FAST FUDGE FROSTING
    4      cups          (1 pound) confectioners' sugar
      1/2  cup           baking cocoa
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/3  cup           boiling water
      1/3  cup           butter  -- melted
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
 
 In a large bowl, combine potatoes, sugar, buttermilk and eggs. Stir in
 butter, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and enough of the flour to
 form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; pat out to 3/4-inch
 thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch floured doughnut cutter. In an electric
 skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 350F. Fry the doughnuts for 2 minutes per
 side or until browned. Place on paper towels. For frosting, sift sugar,
 cocoa and salt into a large bowl. Stir in water, butter and vanilla. Dip
 tops of warm doughnuts in frosting.
