How To Make Potato Bread

This potato bread is a light but firm bread that’s loaded with mashed potatoes! Enjoy it as a side to thick stews or as a filling snack.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Rise Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
Total: 2 hours 50 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1potato,peeled, diced
  • cupswater
  • ¼ozactive dry yeast,(2 packages)
  • cupsall purpose flour
  • 3tbspwhite sugar
  • 2tbspshortening
  • 1tbspsalt
  • 2tbspall purpose flour

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, cook the potato cubes in water for about 12 minutes, or until tender. Do not drain.

  2. Cool the mixture to 110 degrees F. Set aside ½ cup of the cooking liquid.

  3. Mash the potato and remaining liquid, and if necessary, add warm water to make 2 cups of potato mixture.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast on the reserved ½ cup potato water. Add the mashed potato mixture, 2 cups of the flour, sugar, shortening, and salt.

  5. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for ½ minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat for 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in as much of the remaining flour by hand.

  6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface.

  7. Cover. Let rise in warm place for about 1 hour until doubled in bulk.

  8. Punch down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.

  9. Shape each half into a loaf. Place in greased 8x4x2-inch loaf pans. Cover.

  10. Let rise for about 35 minutes until nearly double. Before baking, brush tops with a little water and dust with additional flour.

  11. Bake at 375 degree F for 40 to 45 minutes. Cover with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.

  12. Remove from pan, then cool on a wire rack.

  13. Serve and enjoy!
