I have had this recipe copied down for years, but have not tried it yet. Someone shared this with me on a message board back in the days of Compuserve. This makes a small 1 pound loaf. The name here seems to imply that you would bake up a loaf to share with a new neighbor. I am guessing at the cook time, as the time will vary depending upon your machine.
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup potato water
- 1 1⁄3 cups whole wheat flour
- 2⁄3 cup bread flour
- 1⁄4 cup mashed potatoes (plain, unseasoned)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Add ingredients into your bread machine in the order recommended in your manual- usually wet ingredients, then dry ingredients, then yeast or the exact opposite, depending upon your machine.
- Use the regular cycle or whole wheat cycle.
Soft and fluffy. I made this on the dough cycle, as I rarely ever bake any bread in the machine. This is delicious and my husband enjoyed it with his soup tonight.I am marveling at the moistness of this bread. Wonderful! Will be made many times.Thank you for the recipe.
I figured if this made a 1 pound loaf, I could double it for a 2 lb-er. Well, it didn't work, but the crust of this bread was SO scrumptious that this will be a keeper recipe for me. Next time I'll stick to a smaller loaf or bake in my oven. Also, I subbed a bit of the flour with ground flax.
This made a beautiful loaf in my breadmachine. I put it on the light crust setting and actually, forgot to reserve the potato water, so I used plain water. Very moist tender loaf. Thanks Heather
