RECIPE: Mom's Award-Winning Country White Potato Bread
*Note: This recipe times THREE made two large loaves and four mini-loaves. I believe once over it should just make one loaf. Not super sure. I'll ask. The above photo is of the mini-loaves. And yes, my photography skills are severely lacking...
3 c. flour
2. Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. (or more) instant mashed potato flakes
2 Tbsp. butter-flavored Crisco (eyeball it)
2 tsp. yeast
1 1/2 c. warm milk (can also use dry milk, just reconstitute it to make this much), less on a rainy day
Combine ingredients in a large bowl, adding milk a little at a time (you may need more/less). Beat/knead (beat with bread hook) until well mixed and dough is slightly sticky but still pulls away from you. Put the dough in a pretty ball and place in a new, butter-greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and towel and let rise until doubled in size (1 hr ish). Then punch it down, re-knead, shape, and place in butter-greased bread pans. Cover again with towel. Let rise (again- until good lookin' - another hr?). Bake @ 350F for 30 min. or until desired color is reached.
