If you’ve ever tried potato bread, you know that the addition of mashed potatoes makes for some nice, soft bread because potatoes tend to make bread rise a little fluffier and softer.

Potato Bread made with instant potato flakes and dry milk means you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes or wait for leftover mashed potatoes to make it.

If you’ve ever tried potato bread, you know that the addition of mashed potatoes makes for some nice, soft bread because potatoes tend to make bread rise a little fluffier and softer.
Servings: 20 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Water - (75°– 85°F / 24°– 30°C)
  • 2 tbsp Butter -

    room temperature or Margarine

  • 4 cups Bread flour
  • 1/2 cup Instant Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Dry milk powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Active dry yeast

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Select “Basic” bread setting. If available Choose crust color (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer set Light or Dark) and loaf size (2LB) and Press the Start button.
  • It will mix and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time use a Bread Slicer with an Electric Knife.

Notes

* Instant mashed potato flakes are dehydrated cooked potatoes.
It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the doughball.
Dough is “just right” when it is smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour in the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan, KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust dough.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky, but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without the aid of a bread machine, or make the dough in a bread machine, and bake it in the oven.
Simply make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log; and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s very easy to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.

On the list of ingredients, under mashed potato flakes for the Potato Bread, it looks as though there is an ingredient missing? Is the recipe correct or is there a missing ingredient?

Yes, it is correct, there is no ingredient missing. Thanks Donna.

Can this be made using the ‘quick’ cycle?

Yes, it can. This bread requires kneading and rise time.

Just some important notes:

  • You might need to find a copy of the manual for your machine in order to use the correct cycle.
    • New bread machines often have a Rapid, Express, Quickbread cycle as well as a Cake cycle. Therefore, make sure you are using the correct cycle for your recipe.
  • You should use, “Quick” or “Rapid” or “ExpressBake” cycle, they are for bread in a hurry. It’s varies from machine to machine, but in general, implies the shortening of rising times.
    • If using 58 min ExpressBake, Carefully measure the hot water and make sure it is between 46-52°C/115–125°F by using a cooking thermometer. More information here
    • If using 1h 20min Quick/Rapid it’s okay to use lukewarm water (80-90°F/26-32°C).
    • You must use Quick dry yeast and increase it to 4.5 tsp.
  • You should NOT use Cake cycle, which is just used for non-yeast bread. Cake cycle, sometimes called Quick bread by some breadmakers brands do not use kneading, whereas yeast bread (with a few exceptions) require it.

If you have any question please just ask.

Thank you so much Donna for reading, supporting and sharing.
