Just thought I’d share a super quick post of these gloriously coloured donuts I made earlier to have as a mid afternoon snack. They are exactly like my Sweet Potato Donuts recipe but PURPLE!πŸ’œ   


  •  4 to 5 small Purple Yams (about 400gms)
  • Self raising flour
  • Sunflower oil for frying


1. Peel the skin off the purple yams and roughly chop them. Drop them in a pot of boiling water till they soften before mashing them. 

2. In a big bowl, combine the mashed purple yam with the self raising flour. Not too much or it will make the donuts quite hard. I used about 3 tbsps, just to be able to bind the mixture together.

3. Roll into balls, flatten slightly and with your pinky, pierce a hole in the centre of the dough to shape like a doughnut. Place on a floured surface.

4. In a pan, heat the oil and slow fry them on a medium high heat. Flip over once they are cooked on one side.

5. Once cooked, remove from oil and drain on kitchen towel.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve!

Happy Thursday!☺️
