DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the ingredients in the pan according to the order in the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Set crust on medium and program for the Basic cycle; press Start.
  • The dough ball will be nicely formed and slightly sticky but stiff at the same time when tested.
  • It should feel a bit sticky, so take care not to add any more than an extra tablespoon of flour.
  • The potato flakes will soak up the extra moisture during the rises and will become smooth during the risings.
  • When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan and place it on a rack.
  • Let cool to room temperature before slicing.
