Actually, I was a bit gambling when I used potatoes for the bread because the textures of mashed potato and pumpkin puree are not the same. Mashed potato is way more starchy than pumpkin puree.
To my surprise, the potato bread recipe that I used worked well and I had very nice and soft potato bread. The bread loaf looks so soft and fluffy like a cute pillow before I sliced it. It was so soft and fluffy I almost put my head on it and sleep.
I mean look at this.
The bread looks so soft and fluffy, right?
And here's the recipe that I used to come up with my yummy potato bread.
130gr Potatoes, boiled and mashed
65ml Fresh milk
1 tbs Condensed milk
1 Egg, lightly beaten
250gr Bread Flour
15gr or 1 tbs Unsalted butter, at room temperature
2-3 tbs Sugar (as you desire)
1 tsp Yeast
Potato bread baking and looking tall.
- Double boil or heat fresh milk and condensed milk in a heat-resistant bowl until lukewarm.
- As per the general bread maker function: Place fresh milk, condensed milk, mashed potato, beaten egg, sugar and salt first in the bread maker.
- Pour the bread flour then make a small hole in the flour.
- Put the yeast in the flour hole (make sure the yeast is not in contact with the liquid ingredients before kneading).
- Turn your bread machine on (I use the basic program).
- Once the machine starts kneading and all ingredients now has form a dough, put the butter in.
- Add more flour to the dough if needed. If the dough is too wet, add a bit more flour until the dough is elastic.
- Let your machine do the rest until the bread is completely baked.
I haven't made any home-made white bread as yet so I can't compare its taste with potato bread nor tell which one tastes better as yet. However, I think I prefer the potato bread better than the pumpkin bread. Somehow, I found that the potato bread had softer texture and tastes better than the pumpkin bread - just a thought. I felt that the pumpkin bread was nice but potato bread was kind of nicer.
All in all, the potato bread I made yesterday was so delicious that it tasted good when eaten plain, without any spread.
