Purple Potato Bread!
I've been getting little purple potatoes in my CSA bag, and I decided to make a loaf of bread using some of them ... just to see how neat it would be! I used my bread machine and the recipe follows. I left part of the peels on the potatoes when I boiled and mashed them, so little bits would show up in the texture of the bread! I love it!
Mashed Potato Bread
1 cup water from boiling the potatoes - at room temperature 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 1/4 cup white bread flour 1 1/2 cups cold mashed potatoes 1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons yeast
Begin by pouring the water and oil into the bread pan. Next, add the flour, salt, sugar and milk powder (or powdered creamer). Add the yeast and then add the mashed potatoes. Bake according to your machine's instructions. This makes a large loaf and I used the white bread setting.
Just look at those little purple specks! This bread is delicious. The texture is gooey and soft and the crust is crispy!
