Old Fashion Potato Bread Recipe

Old Fashion Potato Bread

Homemade potato bread tastes nothing like what the stores carry. The bread you make at home is much richer, healthier, and the flavor is unbeatable. This recipe for old-fashioned potato bread is a classic. Generations of families have enjoyed its simple, wholesome flavor.

1 medium potato, cut into 6’s
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon dry yeast
5 – 6 cups bread flour

Oven Temp: 375°
Recipe Cooking Time: minutes
Pan Type:2 loaf pans

Potato Bread Directions

Preheat Oven.

In a large saucepan cook the potatoes in water. Blend the potato and water together in a blender. Pour blended potato back into the pan and add enough water to measure 3 1/2 cups. Let water register 120° F on candy thermometer before adding the yeast. Then add the shortening, sugar, salt and ginger. Mix well with an electric mixer. Add 2 cups of flour and mix well. Add the flour 1/2 a cup at a time to make stiff smooth bread dough. Oil a large bowl and put the old time potato bread dough in. Turn bread dough once to oil other side. Cover old time bread and let rise in a warm place until dough doubles in bulk. Punch dough down. Shape bread into two loaves and place into loaf pans. Cover bread and let rise until it doubles in bulk. Bake old time potato bread in a hot oven for the allotted time or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove bread from pans and place onto wire racks to cool.

Recipe Serves About: 2 loaves

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
