|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.
(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???
