Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine the active starter with 1 1/2 cups water, 2 cups flour and the mashed potatoes.
  • Beat well, cover and let this "sponge" stay in a warm place until very light and bubbly.
  • This will take several hours in warm surroundings or overnight in cooler surroundings.
  • Then stir down the mixture and add the 3/4 cup warm water, salt, oil , sugar and half the remaining flour.
  • Beat well by hand with a wooden mixing spoon.Gradually stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a medium firm dough.
  • Knead the dough well, only adding additional flour to prevent the dough from sticking.
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl , cover, and let rise until doubled in a warm place ( patience, this will eventually happen after quite some hours !) .
  • When doubled, lightly punch down the dough and divide it into two equal portions.
  • Shape the dough and place into oiled bread pans. Cover and let the dough rise in the pans until doubled or well above the rim of the pans.
  • Again, have patience as this will take hours.
  • Then bake in a 375 F degree oven until golden and tested done about 45 minutes or more.
  • When done carefully remove form the pans and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Bread freezes well.
  • Bread has a creamy white moist interior and excellent taste and texture and is a high riser.

    Thanks Midgelet!! I've been looking for a sourdough bread recipe for a while now that included potatoes, and this one is perfect. I'm enjoying slices from the second loaf right now. :-) This recipe is awesome!! The oven spring was unbelievable. This will definitely be on the regular rotation in our household.
