This is a loaf of Potato Bread. I thought I would see if it would work and the answer is YES! I have now baked it as a loaf of bread twice. Once exactly like the rolls only at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and the second time using 1 cup of white whole wheat flour and baking it for 35 minutes. I also put a little melted Smart Balance Light on the top at 25 minutes. This slices beautifully and makes a great sandwich.

Potato Bread
(adapted from Go Dairy Free)
3/4 cup Light Soymilk
1/2 cup or 4 oz. cooked mashed potato (I have microwaved and boiled the potato and both work)
2 TBSP Smart Balance Light, melted
2 TBSP Unsweetened Applesauce
2 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast
2 3/4 to 3 cups Bread Flour (exchange with one cup of White Whole Wheat Flour)
1 tsp salt

Heat soymilk in the microwave for about 1 minute (to 120-130 degrees). In a bowl, mash the potato, smart balance and applesauce until smooth (I used a fork). In a separate mixing bowl, combine the yeast, 2 cups of flour and salt. Add the soymilk and potato mixture to the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add more flour a 1/4 cup at a time. I used 2 1/2 cups at this point. Knead dough for 5 minutes (I did this in my mixer). Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and then place your kneaded dough in it. Turn in over to coat the top of the dough. Dampen a towel with water and microwave it for 1 minute. Place the warm towel over the dough and place it in the microwave...don't turn it back on (this forms a nice proofing box) - or put it in a warm place. Let the dough rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.

Next, spray an 8 inch bread pan with cooking spray. If the bread is too sticky, flour your counter with about 2 TBSP to 1/4 cup of flour and knead a few times (sometimes I need to do this and sometimes I don't. It depends on the moisture outside.). If you don't need more flour, grab dough and fold it over a few times to make an oblong shape. Place in the prepared dish and push it to fit in the dish. Microwave the towel for about a minute. Place the warm towel over the rolls and place them back in the microwave or a warm place. Let rise for 30 minutes to an hour until doubled in size. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30-35 minutes. Bake until golden brown.This is my newest not so guilty pleasure. With the weather getting warmer, I have started to make my newest favorite ice cream again. I made this one a while back and have now perfected it! There is a secret to it though. Would you believe that this could be eaten for breakfast? Can you guess what flavor it is???

    That bread did turn out fabulous! I am so happy it worked and I love your alterations.

    That ice cream also looks absolutely perfect. I am going to have to guess banana on that ingredient. Or maybe oats?

    What? Oatmeal Ice cream? I love oatmeal anything and I'm guessing that since you said breakfast. Will you share your recipe. I am dairy free due to allergies and would love to know how you made the ice cream. I have tried some of your previous recipes and look forward to reading your new ones.

    Mmm, potato bread and ice cream. Two of my favs! The bread looks absolutely fabulous, as does the ice cream. I'd love some of both! Sorry that I've been an absent commenter; I just finished up my law school exams and am finally getting around to my google reader.
