Potato Bread

This is my favorite bread to bake and the most popular in my house. This is the bread I always have on hand. Since starting to bake my own bread 6 months ago, I seldom buy store-bought.

Bread baking can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Just be careful and take the time think about each step. Don’t expect perfect results if you’re a beginner, but DONT GIVE UP.

Its important to me that I bake my own bread, number one being because I love the process. I love that most breads have a few simple ingredients, yet result in magic that can sustain life. I believe that as little additives as possible in bread and food, helps our minds and bodies function better, and makes us feel better. I believe that the more we can learn to sustain ourselves the better off we are.

I hope you enjoy baking and eating this bread as much as I do.

THE TOOLS
1 Fork
3 mixing bowls (1 LG, 1 MD, 1SM)
1 Knife
2 9X5 Loaf pans
1 probe thermometer

THE RECIPE
1 T Instant Yeast
1/2 cup sugar (optional)
1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
