Add this flour mixture to the potatoe mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Place dough on a floured surface. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with doughnut cutter and drop inot oil that's been heated to 365 f in a deep fat fryer, a wok or a deep skillet. Fry on both sides, turning over once. Remove and drain on paper towels.
