Ingredients used:

For 2 people

  • 2 Cups - Potato water – warmed
  • 1 Package - Active dry yeast
  • 3 Tablespoons - Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon - Salt
  • 3 Cups - All-Purpose Flour – Unbleached
  • 2 Tablespoons - Shortening – melted
  • 2.5 Cups - All-Purpose Flour – Unbleached
  • 2 Large - Potatoes – diced

Recipe steps:

  • Combine the active dry yeast with the warm potato water and let it foam in a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the sugar, salt and 3 cups of flour. Beat well to develop the gluten in the dough.
  • Stir in the cooled melted shortening.
  • Add the remaining 2.5 to 3 cups of flour gradually.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning the dough once to grease the top. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size, which takes about 1 to 1.5 hours.
  • Knead the dough down in the bowl. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a ball. Place each ball in a well-greased rounded pan.
  • Cover the pans and let the dough rise until it has almost doubled in size, which takes 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Before baking, dust the loaves lightly with flour.
  • Bake the loaves in a preheated oven at 400°F (204°C) for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Allow the loaves to cool on wire racks before slicing or serving.
