Boil potato and mash. Add the butter and mix until smooth.Put all dry ingredients and egg into mixer. Add mashed potato/butter mix and enough water to make a very soft dough. Beat for about 5 minutes in machine. It should be a little sticky. Ttransfer to a greased large bowl to rest until dbl in volume. Knock down and make little balls. If it's too sticky use a little flour to form your shapes. Roll into a log about 15cm long. Fold in half and twist to make a classic Koeksusters shape. If u can't achieve this just make little balls. Remember it's going to dbl in size again so make your shapes smaller. Allow to rest again for half an hour and fry on a med heat until golden.
