  • RECIPE  SUBMITTED BY Crystall Ash Cunningham
    Easy Potato Bread
    •1 cup mashed potatoes
    •2 eggs, beaten
    •1/2 cup butter, soft
    •1/2 cup sugar
    •1 tsp salt
    •2-1/4 tsp (1 pkg) active dry yeast
    •1/2 cup warm water or saved potato water
    •5 cups bread flour, about

    1.In large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, eggs, and butter.
    2.Stir in sugar, salt, yeast, and warm water.
    3.Mix in enough flour to make a dough that can be kneaded by hand.
    4.Turn dough out onto floured board and knead it until smooth and elastic.
    5.Put dough in a greased bowl. Flip dough over inside bowl so that the dough top is also lightly greased. Cover and let rise for 1 to 2 hours, until double in bulk.
    6.Punch down dough. Turn out onto lightly floured board and briefly knead out bubbles.
    7.Divide dough in half and shape into two loaves.
    8.Place loaves in two greased 8x4x2-inch bread pans. Cover and let rise a second time for 40 minutes or until doubled.
    9.Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when the top is tapped on.
    10.Remove from loaf pans and let cool. I always use my big mixer.. also use bread maker..

  • Crystall Ash Cunningham I always mix the yeast with the sugar and warm (not hot) fluids from the recipe and let it foam for few minutes before starting..
    i always use a little extra yeast too but i buy my yeast in a GIANT package and keep in freezer..
