Potato bread

At last I found bread that my hubby really enjoyed eating it 🙂 Yeah… For long time I baked only bread without the crust. But now I have big hopes that we will make a break with it and start baking this potato bread. By the way, the taste of this bread is slightly similar to “švilpikai” 🙂

Potato bread

Time needed:
Yields: 2 small loaves or 1 kg loaf
Calories: 2266 kcal / all

Ingredients:

  • 500 g superior grade flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 15 g butter
  • 7 g active dry yeast
  • 250 g boiled potatoes, cold and mashed
  • about 250 g water or milk, warm
  • sunflower oil for greasing baking forms

Directions:

  • Pour flour and salt to a bowl, rub in butter, mix in yeast.
  • Put mashed potatoes and rub in the flour.
  • In the middle make a hole and pour water just to make soft and quite sticky dough.
  • On the floured surface knead the dough till it becomes smooth and tensile.
  • Form a ball and put it in the oiled big bowl. Cover with the oiled cling film and let rise in the warm place for an hour or till the dough will double.
  • Take out the dough on the lightly floured surface and punch a few times. Knead until the dough will be smooth and tensile..
  • Grease with the oil baking forms.
  • Divide the dough in halves, form loaves.
  • Put them in baking forms, cover with oiled cling film and let stand for 30 minutes or till the dough will rise.
  • Bake in 230°C preheated oven 10 minutes, then low down the heat to 200°C and bake for 20-25 minutes more or till the bread will brown.
  • Knock the loaves bottom. If you hear hollow sound – it’s ready.
  • Enjoy!

Notes: I prepared dough in bread machine. Then took the dough, kneaded a little bit, formed a loaf and put it to bread machine form just without mixers. Left to rise for an half-an-hour, then baked about 40-50 minutes.

Crepes with ham and cheese

It’s easy and quick dinner. I’ve tried to make crepes with ham and cheese filling before, but I missed something. And when I tried this recipe I understood, that this is it I was looking for. And the secret ingredient to success is mayonnaise.

Potato and curds Arrows

Potato and cottage cheese Arrows

After lunch I had boiled potato leftover, so I let my fantasy take me away 🙂 These arrows are really greate and cheese is here a must. But you should be careful with the salt, because cheese already has it inside.

Lietiniai su brokoliais ir sūriu

Crepes stuffed with broccoli and cheese

I’m very excited when the recipe which I chose to prepare is admitted 110 percents. I wanted to make these crepes all week long, but all week I had no time to spend in the kitchen. And only this weekend the time has come 🙂 I’m very glad that I made only half portion because if there were more than four crepes I couldn’t stop eating. The filling is so light, with the gentle taste of broccoli and very nice taste of cheese. My hubby said he wasn’t hungry but ate one crepe and was very excited 🙂 The next time I will not make our usual crepes with cheese filling, but give a little bit more time and make these crepes.

Picos padas su kepimo milteliais

Pizza dough with baking powders

This pizza dough is for those who always don’t have time to prepare pizza dough with yeast. It helped me several times, when I suddenly understood that I want pizza for Friday night and there was no pizza dough with yeast frozen in a freezer. My family liked it also and I’m very happy about that 🙂

Duonos lazdelės su paprika ir sezamu

Bread sticks with paprika and sesame

Very good snack. Kids came from the kinder-garden and ate only these sticks till none was left. I had to hide some for photo session. I baked them already two times. The first time I rolled sticks in sesame seeds, but the next day I had joy cleaning all house with vacuum-cleaner from the seeds 🙂 The next time I put sesame seeds inside the dough and it was more practical and the taste didn’t differ very much.
