Potato Bread

, , , , ,

We find this potato bread so great! It’s soft, fluffy and really easy to make. It does take a little time, but that’s what makes this bread so delicious!

You use cooked potatoes, left over from the day before for example, grated.

The dough is kneaded in the evening and left covered, overnight, to rise at room temperature.
In the morning, the dough is shaped into a round form and placed in a floured fermenting basket.
(I don’t have a fermenting basket so I use a bowl with a tea towel that I flour well, works well too! ;-)) Leave to rise for about 1 hour and then bake in preheated oven with lots of steam.
The result is a delicious homemade potato bread.

We have already baked this bread a countless of times because it really tastes so good! Nothing beats fresh, home-baked bread, still slightly warm with butter, just a dream.
