This bread dough can be used for just about ANYTHING, cinnamon rolls, holiday breads, rolls and everything in between. One thing's for sure, there wont be any left for a photo!
SUPER Soft And Delicious Potato Bread (otherwise known as THE BEST BREAD ON EARTH!)
1 T yeast
1 1/2 C lukewarm potato water (plain water works too, but potato is BEST!)
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter (or oil- olive, almond, walnut, or ANY nut oil is great too!)
1 cup lukewarm mashed potatoes
5 cups unbleached naturally white flour (whole wheat is fine but gives bread a denser texture)
1/2 cup dry milk powder
1/2 cup wheat germ (optional, but worth it!)
1/2 cup ground flax (optional, but worth it!)
Dissolve yeast in water. Add honey, salt, eggs, butter, potatoes, and any optional ingredients. Stir in flour to make a pliable dough. Knead 10 minutes or so, it should be smooth and rubbery texture -but silky soft as well ( I suggest kneading until your hands fall off, IT'S WORTH IT!). Let rise until doubled in a warm place, or cover and let rise in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Form dough into 2 loaves and put into 2 greased bread pans. Bake rolls at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Recipe can be halved or doubled.
