I made this last night, it was wonderful. It didn't raise as high as my bread usually does, but it was delicious. My daughter said it just might be her new favorite bread. Thanks for the recipe.
great bread. pleasure to work with,and then once cooled sliced beautifully, has made my top ten of fav bread to make and eat !! thanks for sharing.
Wonderful - balanced - sweet/savory. Served with a poached egg it was perfect. Had a slice later in day with a cup of tea - again perfect. Diane Parks
Turned out beautifully and great slice bread. Had one cup leftover mashed potatoes so heated them in the micro and proceed from there. Beautiful bread.
I had 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes and decided to use them in this recipe. It was sticky enough that I added at least 1 more cup of flour. I also added chopped fresh rosemary and chopped black olives. I needed to adjust all of the times. On the first rise, I let it rise 1.5 hours, without the break after 30 minutes, as the recipe called for. The second rising took 1 hour, and I baked it for 40 minutes. The results were fabulous. Two of us ate half of one loaf with a bowl of homemade soup. I will DEFINITELY make it again.
I am so glad I found this recipe! My entire family thanks you for sharing it! This is so easy to prepare. I did have to use a bit more flour than called for in the recipe, possibly an entire cup more, but I think that had more to do with my potatoes than anything. I did not use my food processor, I just used a hand held mixer and it worked well. The end result were two beautiful loaves of bread that my family demolished in no time flat. The slices were sturdy enough to make sandwiches and make excellent toast. We liked it so much that I am making it again today!
