Potato Bread-Bread Machine

Yes, I know that there are already recipes for potato bread on Zaar, but couldn't find one like this one! This is a good crusty loaf with a soft centre making it perfect for sandwiches. We don't buy any bread, so I rely heavily on good bread recipes-this one we like a lot! Tip: if you are using leftover mashed potato that has had milk and or butter added, you may need to reduce the liquid a little.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the water and oil into the bread pan. If your instructions specify that the yeast is to placed into the pan first, reverse the order in which you add the liquid and dry ingredients.
  2. Sprinkle over the flour, ensuring that it covers the water. Add the mashed potato and milk powder. Add the salt and sugar in separate corners of the bread pan. Make a small indent into the centre of the flour and add the yeast.
  3. Set the machine to basic and medium crust and start.
  4. To glaze the loaf, brush the top with milk either at the beginning of cooking time or halfway through.

I don't own a bread machine so followed Wax Lion's tips re rising times and baking temp. While flavor of finished bread is lovely, the dough didn't rise properly so the finished loaf and 4 hamburger buns were dense and cake-y.

Very tasty bread. I made ours into dough and made into rolls instead of a loaf. Will certainly make again. Made for 123 tag.

Excellent easy bread. I just threw everything into the bread machine and 3 hours later I had a wonderful crusty on the outside, soft on the inside bread. Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.
