This potato bread was a really straight forward recipe!
- Boil potatoes
- Mash the potatoes
- Mix in the remaining ingredients.
- Allow the dough to rise for two short 20 min periods

Got the dough ready…got through all of the short rises…seemed like I was going to sail through this recipe. Went to shape my loaves, and oh wow! Then everything fell apart…literally! My dough was SO flimsy..like hardly any substance at all. I really could not work with the dough at all to make it into any kind of a “torpedo”. I was really concerned that the bread might not work out but I figured what was there to lose. I shaped them the best I could and put them in the oven.
They smelled good and surprisingly looked good when I took them out of the oven! Not quite the “torpedo” shape but at this point I was just glad we had something that looked like crusty bread. 🙂
We let the bread rest and then cut into it. I don’t think any of us in my family had ever had potato bread so it was a new experience for us. Interesting taste! The bread was really fresh, light, and had a nice crusty exterior. I am not sure I really liked the flavor, but my family enjoyed it. My daughter was home from college and was able to partake as a “taster” so that was nice! She usually has to hear about the TWD adventures in my kitchen and not get to experience it. Overall, everyone was happy. All of my tasting groups reported back that the bread was delicious! My dad even texted me saying he loved it and he was putting in a order for two loaves. I would say the bread was a success! I guess the problems I had with the dough had no bearing on taste! 🙂 Always good to persevere and just see how it turns out in the end! I will be curious to see if anyone else had the same issues with the dough.
Update: I ate the few mocha chip cookies I saved for after Easter…they were DELICIOUS!! 🙂
