This week before Christmas I have been playing with breads so that I have loaves to give away & loaves for our Christmas celebrations ... I have given away a couple of loaves of English granary bread.. and am ready with some Broa (Portuguese corn bread) and Olive Bread.
Click on the links to find where I originally made them from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day!
I plan on making more so will give details next week!
But first I have to tell you about the next bread in the recipe collection -
OMG Potato Bread!
I have to say that this particular bread is the hands down favorite of my clan! See the picture below? That is loaf #6... the SIXTH loaf I baked..... the other were inhaled so quickly that I forgot to get a photo!
Each batch of dough makes 3 loaves... the instructions say 4 but apparently I don't see it that way :-)
I have to tell you that this bread smells like a giant potato pancake when it comes out of the oven! There are instructions on making the mashed potatoes used for the bread but I used my own mashed potato casserole.. (chunky with garlic and cheese). It is exquisite! The chunks of potato IN the bread were an added bonus according to my people :-)
The mashed potato makes the bread very moist and you definitely do NOT need butter!
I also baked the next bread - Potato Rye Bread - which is really moist. I have to say though that I liked the rye bread we baked earlier in the book better.
