Dissolve yeast in warm water and add to cooled scalded milk, mashed potatoes and butter. Blend in 2 cups flour, the baking soda, salt and baking powder. Mix well then add enough flour to make soft dough. Knead well. Put in refrigerator overnight or chill a bit. Punch down while still warm. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut into strips. Fry in oil until golden brown on both sides. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or serve warm with honey butter.
