Potato Yeast Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
Two golden round loaves with tender texture and a hint of sweetness is what you'll get when you try my mother-in-law's recipe. The blend of potato, nutmeg and lemon is unusually good for a yeast bread.

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 118 calories, 2 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 25 mg cholesterol, 136 mg sodium, 21 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, cook potato in water until tender. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup water; cool to 120°-130°. Mash potato; measure 1/2 cup (discard any remaining potato). Add milk and 1 tablespoon butter to mashed potato (mixture will be soft).
  2. In a bowl, combine 3 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt, lemon peel and nutmeg. Melt remaining butter; cool to 120°-130°. Add the cooled potato water and melted butter to flour mixture; beat until moistened. Add eggs and mashed potato mixture; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  3. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into two loaves. Place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 325° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
