Grandma's potato bread

My grandma used to make the best potato bread. My favorite way to eat it was with jam. It was so delicious that I could eat half a loaf of it. I have now revisited the recipe and replaced the egg with apple sauce. It worked wonderfully! The taste reminds me of home, and it won't be the last time I bake this. Have fun trying them out!

Equipment

  • 1 Loaf pan
  • 1 Mixer with dough hook optional

Ingredients

These Ingredients make:

10 Portions (1 loaf)
  • 400 g Potatoes
  • 500 g Flour
  • 7 g Dry yeast or 20 g fresh yeast
  • 1 TL Maple syrup
  • 1 TL Salt
  • 200 ml Oat milk warm
  • 50 g soft vegan butter
  • 2 EL Applesauce or apple puree
  • 50 ml Vegan oat cream or oat milk for coating

Instructions
 

Prepare the potatoes

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into small pieces.
  2. Bring to the boil in a pan of water and cook for about 15-20 minutes until soft.
  3. Drain the potatoes and press through a potato ricer or puree with a blender.
  4. Leave the potatoes to cool slightly after blending before processing them further until they are only warm. If they are too hot, the yeast will die.

Prepare the dough

  1. In a large bowl, mix the mashed or pureed potatoes with the flour, dry yeast, sugar, salt, warm oat milk, soft vegan butter and apple sauce.
  2. Knead the dough well until it is smooth and uniform. If available, use a mixer or food processor with dough hook.

Allow the yeast dough to rise

  1. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth.
  2. Leave the dough to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour until it has doubled in volume.

Shaping and baking bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top/bottom heat.
  2. Knead the dough again briefly after the rising time. Use flour, otherwise it will stick too much.
  3. Pour into a greased baking tin or one lined with baking paper and spread the batter evenly. Spread with vegan cream or oat milk.
  4. Place the bread in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 minutes until golden brown.

Leave to cool and enjoy

  1. Remove the finished potato bread from the oven and leave to cool briefly in the tin.
  2. Then remove from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Cut into slices and enjoy as you like.
  4. Bread tastes good for 2-3 days and can also be frozen.

Notes

Tip: I cut the bread into slices and freeze the slices. That way, I can defrost a slice in the toaster whenever I fancy some potato bread. 🙂
