Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan cook potato cubes in water for about 12 minutes, or until tender. Do not drain. Cool mixture to 110 degrees F (43 degrees C). Set aside 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Mash potato and remaining liquid; if necessary add warm water to make 2 cups potato mixture.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle yeast on reserved 1/2 cup potato water. Add mashed potato mixture, 2 cups of the flour, sugar, shortening, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can mix in by hand.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover. Let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes. Shape each half into a loaf. Place in greased 8 x 4 x 2 inch loaf pans. Cover. Let rise until nearly double, about 35 minutes. Before baking, brush tops with a little water and dust with additional flour.
  5. Bake at 375 degree F (190 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes. Cover with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

I have to give this a 5 star! I was looking for a recipe that emulated Martin's potato rolls. This didn't, however I loved the texture. It was light and fluffy, yet had a heavier mouth-feel than I expected. Very good. The flavor isn't a strong potato flavor that I was going for, but I was pleasantly surprised. The texture is also very good as hamburger buns. My suggestion is to add a little more potato and instead of shortening, add vegetable or canola oil. I also kneeded it for about a half hour, just because I got lost in thought and realized it when I looked at the clock. proofed very nicely in a bowl using any pan spray with a damp towel draped across the top. personally, I let my breads proof in a warmed oven, and they rise amazingly well. I took half of the recipe and made rolls, and the other half made a twist bread out of. (rolled it into an inch thick rectangle, cut the half dough in half, twisted two pieces, and repeated with the other side. placed them side by side in the loaf pan tucking the ends under. I'll take a picture before I slice into it. I also use a double-egg wash. 1 egg with a tablespoon of water while dough is well... dough. then just before finishing I brush it again. All in all, very well done, and tasty. I can say it was a LOT easier to make in the kitchenaid mixer with a dough hook than it would have been to make by hand, but hey if you want to, go for it.

WOW!! This bread is amazing! Some reviewers said that their bread was dense, but my bread was incredibly light (perhaps because I let them rise a little longer on the second rise). It is soo tender! My family really enjoyed this recipe...the bread it produced was my best yet.
