  1. Wash and peal potatoes. If using large potatoes cut them in half. Place potatoes in a medium sauce pan covered with water. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, cool, and mash.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cup mashed potatoes with butter or margarine, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla; beat until smooth. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to the potato mixture; stirring until well combined. Refrigerate batter for 1 hour.
  3. Fill a 2 to 4 quart sauce pan 1 to 2 inches deep with vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Form the chilled batter in 1 tablespoon size balls. Use a spoon to carefully slide the potato balls into the hot oil. Let cook until brown, turn, and cook opposite side. Remove from oil, briefly drain on paper towels, and roll in powdered sugar. Serve hot.

ok, not as good as expected

Delicious!! I make these vegan and gluten free and they still turn out great! The modifications that I make are: 1/2 oat flour (or ground oatmeal in my Vitamix), 1/2 Bob's Red Mill all purpose...

These where a great hit!

Well, they were just 'OK' for us. A little dry, heavy and bland. Would likely not make again after having made others on the site.
