Potato series 1: potato bread

By Katina


- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 package active dry yeast
- 3 tbsp granulated sugarpinch of salt
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or canola oil
- 4-5 cups bread flour
- 1 egg, beaten


Step 1

Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain and mash well.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of warm water with the yeast and sugar. Allow the yeast to proof for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in the salt, the oil, and the mashed potatoes. Stir in the bread flour, one cup at a time. Add enough flour to form a soft dough, then knead for 10 minutes, until the dough is soft and elastic.

Step 4

Place the dough into a large greased bowl, and let proof for about 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in size. Punch down the dough, divide in half, and knead each piece gently for 2 minutes. Place each ball into a greased loaf pan or baking tray, and let proof for 30 minutes.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. If desired, mix the egg with a bit of water or milk, and brush over the bread just before baking, and brush again about five minutes before the bread is finished baking for a nice golden colour.

Step 6

Bake the bread for 30-40 minutes, until it is golden brown, crusty, and sounds hollow when tapped.
