Definitely needs a second rise in the pans before baking. My bread was still doughy in the center. I will have to eat it as toast. Should have read the reviews before I started.
I agree, the loaf needs a rise before baking, and I did that. The bread is very nice, with a soft texture and good flavor, but leaving out that second rise is a serious mistake. There is not sufficient oven spring to bring that loaf up without it.
You din't let the loaf have a 2nd rise before baking? My bread was not tall enough, in my opinion and feel a 2nd rise was omitted from this recipe by accident? Yes?
One teaspoon salt per loaf is the norm-hence 2 tsps works great in this recipe. Lovely light bread. Enjoyed by all immensely.
Delicious! The bread is so soft and tender. I used about 2 teaspoons of salt intead of the tablespoon given. Mine was not done after 20 minutes so I will bake it for about 30 minutes and maybe lower the temperature just a bit the next time.
could use this recipe for rolls also. Very good
It is so hood that I could eat the whole loave
For this recipe, you use actual mashed potatoes...not dried flakes. This is very good, but I agree with edl274, I cut the salt in half.
When you made this did you use mashed potato flakes dry or did you use leftover mashed potatoes?
Way too salty. If I made this again, I'd cut the salt down maybe to half.
