My Sourdough Potato BreadFrom midgelet 7 years ago
- Note, rising times are long and I did not list under prep time shopping list
- 1 cup sourdough starter- left out at room temp and bubbly shopping list
- 1 1/2 cups warm water shopping list
- 2 cups bread flour shopping list
- 1 cup plain prepared mashed potatoes shopping list
- 3/4 cup warm water shopping list
- 2 teaspoons salt shopping list
- 1/3 cup oil or melted margarine or butter shopping list
- 1/3 cup sugar shopping list
- 6 1/2 to 7 cups bread flour shopping list
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.
