Today I made potato and leek bread using my bread machine. It turned out well. We will have a tiny snack and then it will be sliced. Some will go in the freezer, two slices to a small bag. Tomorrow will be a slightly more indulgent morning though.
Potato and Leek Bread
|The ingredients in the pan.|
Use the order I listed.
Wet followed by dry. Space between sugar, salt and yeast.
375 ml water
3 Tablespoons oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 cups bread flour
2 Tablespoons milk powder
4 Tablespoons instant potato flakes
1 sachet yeast
3/4 cup chopped leek
- This makes a 1 kilogram loaf.
- Put everything in the bread machine and set on Basic bread with a Light crust.
- When the bread is finished it will look pale, but it will be ready.
|Finished loaf ready to slice. You can see that it really rose a lot. |
Thankfully it fell down a bit or maybe the lid would have lifted.
Added later: This bread is better if cut in thick slices. It is quite light and thin slices are difficult to cut. But it tastes delicious and I am glad I made it. Thick slices are good too.
