How to Make Potato Bread


  • 2 Boil potatoes
  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Yeast
  • Salt to taste
  • 1.4 cups Potato water
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 4 tbsp Butter


  • Boil Potatoes
    First, you need to peel two potatoes and cut them into small cubes. Then take a saucepan with some water. Try to use filter water while boiling potatoes. You are going to use this water later for making potato bread. Tap water has chemicals that can deteriorate the quality of your bread.
    Now heat the water along with potatoes on low flame for about 10 to 15 minutes. Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove the potatoes from the water and allow them to cool for 15 to 20 minutes. But don’t throw the water. Now once the potato becomes cool, you need to mash them properly.
  • Prepare Dough
    Take a bowl and add flour, sugar, salt, and yeast and stir it for one minute. Then add butter, milk, some potato water, and mash potatoes into the mixture. Now mix everything by paddle attachment for few minutes. You need to remember one thing: the dough needs to be tight and sticky. So, if your dough becomes too dry, then try to use some more potato water.
  • Knead The Dough
    Now you need to knead your dough with a dough hook with minimum speed for at least 8 -10 minutes.
  • Place The Dough In Oily Bowl
    Once your dough becomes smooth and silky, stop kneading and allow the dough to sit for 1 to 1.5 hours in an oily bowl. Try to cover the oily bowl with some cloth and keep it in a warm place. The dough will become double in size within this time.
  • Try To Punch Your Dough
    Once you observe that your dough has become double in size, try to punch it and divide it into two equal parts. You need to knead each part of the dough on a surface with little flour. Try to give the shape of loaves to your dough.
  • Take Loaf Pans
    Now take loaf pans and grease them slightly. Then place your loaf dough on the greased pan. Cover the pan and allow it to sit for 30 minutes. The dough will double in size
  • Try To Preheat Your Oven
    Please try to preheat the oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit when the dough is resting for some time on grease loaf pans.
  • Bake Your Bread
    Now, bake your bread in the oven till the top of your bread becomes golden yellow. It usually takes 30-35 minutes to bake the bread.
  • Remove The Bread
    Now remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool for some time. Then you store it in an airtight container for making various items like a sandwich, or you can cut two halves and put butter on each half and enjoy as evening snacks. There are multiple ways of eating potato bread. You just have to use it according to your taste.
