Ingredients

15 slice(s)

Potato Bread

  • 200 g Potato or Sweet potato
  • 1000 g water, for cooking
  • 160 g water, cold
  • 1 tsp Yeast
  • 15 g olive oil
  • 300 g bakers flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Recipe's preparation

    Potato Bread
  1. Wash and chop the potato/sweet potato into 2 cm chunks (I leave the skin on).

     

    Place the potato in the simmering basket and add 1000g water to the TM bowl. Cook for 12-15 minutes, Varoma, Speed 2 or until just cooked. Remove the basket and discard the water.

     

    Insert the butterfly. Place the potato into the TM bowl and mash for 20-30 seconds, speed 3-4 or until smooth. Add the cold water and mash for a further 5 seconds, speed 3. Remove the butterfly.

     

    If the temperature has dropped to 37C or below, add the remaining ingredients and knead 2 minutes Closed lidDough mode. If the temperature is above 37C, wait until it has cooled to 37C then proceed with this step.

    Check the consistency of the dough, if it is too sticky, add more flour 50g at a time, if it is too dry add more water 20g at a time. Knead for 30s after any additions.

     

    Turn the dough out onto a thermomat or floured surface and knead briefly to form a tight ball. Wrap and leave to prove for 30-40 mins or until doubled in size.

     

    Knock down and shape into desired shape on a baking tray or place into bread tin (I use a small tin, 340g, 18x11x10cm). Leave to prove for a further 30-40 mins or until just at the top of the tin. Preheat oven to 200C.

     

    Slash the top of the loaf (optional) and place bread into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. I switch my oven to bottom element only for the last 10 minutes.

Tip

Try adding some rosemary or thyme for more flavour. Chop the herbs with the flour before (10 seconds speed 10) cooking the potato.

    Made this 2x - once with potato as per recipe & the other sweet potato with spelt flour. Both were lovely although the latter was a little more dense. The one made as per recipe is beautiful and fluffy!

    Very nice bread and easy to make. I microwaved the sweet potato to avoid extra water and so did not need any extra flour. Proving in my oven was easy and I added a burst of moisture before baking. Delicious

    This has become a family favourite in my house, such yummy bread. I have been using pumpkin instead of sweet potato as I had loads of them, and it has made such gloriously coloured loaves. I love that it also sneaks some vegetables into my children!

    Submitted by AmesinAus on 26. January 2016 - 13:03.

    Heaven help us - we are half way through it and its not even 2 hours out of the oven!

    Delicious. Added the additional 100g of flour, a few chopped rosemary sprigs from the garden. and ended up ditching the butterfly as my sweet potato was still a little hard. This did not matter, i chopped it, scraped and chopped again then continued on. I think it's my favourite! I split the dough to make one regular loaf and one small; 2/3 1/3 split. Baked for 20 minutes and it was spot on.

    Ps this is my second time making and I think its even better than the first!

    Awesome recipe! I use at least an extra 100g flour to get it to combine well and it rises beautifully, really good crumb and lasts in the fridge for about a week, also great toasted. My kids normally don't eat sweet potato so it's a great way to smuggle it into them tmrc_emoticons.-)

  • I'm so pleased I tried this

    Submitted by letstryit on 27. July 2015 - 17:04.

    I'm so pleased I tried this recipe. I used sweet potato which I found took 18 minutes to cook. This batch needed an extra 50 g of flour. I made it as a simple cottage loaf with some sesame seeds on top. It has kept pretty fresh for 2 days, has a nice colour and makes beautiful toast. It was so nice I will make it exactly the same next time, before I try using potato in the recipe. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for posting, Karen.

  • I made 2 of these in 1 week.

    Submitted by scorpiotania on 22. March 2015 - 10:32.

    I made 2 of these in 1 week. First one was a green potato bread (milled some baby spinach with the flour) in honour of St Patrick's Day. I doubled the recipe and ended up with a large loaf and a small round freeform loaf, which my husband took to work. Kids loved the idea of green bread. Two days later I made the sweet potato version. I wanted a larger loaf to fit in my bread tin, so just times all the ingredients by 1.5 and it was perfect! I had a couple of girlfriends over for lunch the next day and served it with hommus as a starter - had to take the bread away from them!

    Karen, you are a legend!
