 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Instant mashed potato flakes
  • 2 c Milk; scalded
  • 1 pk Active dry yeast OR two
  • -cakes fresh yeast
  • 1/2 c Warm water; (105-115)
  • 1 pn Sugar
  • 6 c Bread flour
  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 1 tb Salt
  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter; (1/2 stick)
  • -(melted and cooled)
  • White cornmeal


Place instant potatoes in a small bowl, add the scalded milk, and stir to
dissolve. In another bowl, mash the yeast and add water and sugar. Stir
well and set aside.

In a large mixer bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt Add the potato
mixture, yeast mixture, and butter. Stir with a spatula until flour is
moistened. Using a mixer dough hook, knead mixture for 10 minutes. It
should form a ball and pull away from the bottom of the container. Place
dough in a fresh, buttered bowl. Cover lightly and let rise in a warm place
until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Thinly butter two 8 x 4-inch loaf pans. Add a small amount of the cornmeal
to the pans and rotate to evenly coat the interiors. Knock out any excess.
Set aside.

Punch down and divide dough into 2 equal pieces. On a sparingly floured
board, roll out one piece of dough into an 8 x 14-inch rectangle. Brush off
any excess flour, then roll into a loaf shape, pinching bottom seam to
seal. Place dough, seam side down, in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining
dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until dough
extends 2 inches above pan.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F degrees.

Bakes loaves in the oven for 34 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Loaves
should make a hollow sound when tapped. Let cool on a wire rack.
