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.

Cherry coffee cake with cinnamon

One day I had a strong feeling that I just have to bake something for my co-workers. So I told my hubby that he has to look after our children till they get asleep and went to the kitchen. We tasted this coffee cake the next day. And it tasted very good, so until lunch the coffee cake was gone.

Cookies with cottage cheese

Once great grandparents brought from the farmer market home made cottage cheese for there beloved grandchildren. But the cheese wasn’t so delicious as everyone wanted so for a long time it sat quietly in the corner of a fridge and waited. But the day has come when this cheese was used for unsweetened cookies, that tasted something between cookies and baked cottage pancakes. Everyone was happy – children, because they got tasty snack, cottage cheese – because at last he was useful, and parents – that didn’t throw away spend money.

Boiled potato pancakes with cabbage filling

Bored of eating potatoes and cabbages? Don’t know what to do with them? This is the solution I found yesterday on the internet. It’s a little bit time consuming, but it’s cheap. A day before a boiled potatoes and an egg, braised cabbage with onion. So the next day I had only to form pancakes and bake. My hubby was nicely surprised with the taste, and I – with the smell (I remember it from my childhood).

Beetroot soup with minced meat

Easy but substantial soup. Because of vinegar you can feel mild sourness, so you better pour vinegar not by milliliters but by your taste. And I can say one more thing – I’ve tasted delicious soup like this long time ago.

Cottage cheese and boiled potato bake

Potatoes and cottage cheese – it’s always a great company. So why not to combine them in to a bake. It can be prepared within a few minutes. I found this recipe in Russian magazine about child-caring, but significantly changed by our observations: original recipe asks to slice the potatoes, but we prefer grated because it distributes better; original asks to pour more milk, we prefer the more eggs, and this bake comes out stronger. For us our experimentations came out super tasty. So, honestly, I urge you to try it too 😉
