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.

Chilled dough cookies with walnuts

I have no time to do nothing 🙂 My job is taking all my time. Good news that it will not last forever. So I have no time to bake cookies or pies, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting some sweets. And these cookies are perfect – you can form a log and then put in a freezer for later bake, when you will have no spare time.

Russian pancake baked in an oven

The first pancake that baked out grate. Others that I’ve tries were some how not good – too much milk, or too much berries. But this time pancake was fluffy, and tender. Only next time I’ll try to bake it in a larger form, because this time it came out very thick and that’s why taste was like curd bake but without curd 🙂 But it’s tasty, easy and quick. And you don’t have to stand near the pan.

Chanterelles with oven roasted potatoes

To tell the truth, this dish last year ate even my hubby! And agreed that it not only looks great, but taste the same way too. To bake potatoes in the oven takes time, so sometimes I change them with boiled potatoes. However, if you are not in hurry, you should really try to bake them in the oven. It is more tasty that way.
