BWJ - Rustic Potato Loaves

 aka the bread that almost wasn't.

I had it in my head that this was a typical long-rest bread. Add to that I was going to have to actually cook potatoes first AND I don't even have a mixer at the moment, I was sure this was not going to happen!

But then I realised how quick it would be, and hubby cooked the potatoes for me, and I realised I could mix the dough in the breadmaker. Voila.

I made half the recipe and got a really decent sized loaf. You will notice from the picture that I forgot to cook the bread seam side up so it doesn't have the same look as the book. Still, it was delicious and made the house smell like an intoxicating mix of fresh bread and hot chips. Doesn't get much better than that!

Make sure you visit our host Dawn of Simply Sweet for the recipe.

  1. It looks good, seam or no seam. I baked mine seam side down too, as that is what you would usually do.

  5. Your bread looks great. I like not seeing the seam. I'm thinking if I add things to the bread (like Dawn did) it might be the way to ensure everything stays in the loaf.
    This really was a great recipe....can't wait to make it again.

  12. So pleased you did not give up and made it in the bread mixer. It looks beautifully rustic.
    It's my favourite bread so far! I've made it in 4 different variations:
    with whole wheat and flax seeds,
    whole wheat and and flax seeds and walnut/pecan,
    whole wheat and flax seeds and sunflowers
    and even made one with sourdough instead of yeast: definitely the best bread I've made so far.
