If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Potato Bread

This recipe is written in my mom's handwriting. This must be a copy she wrote out for Grammy. I recognize this recipe from watching my mom bake and going through her recipe box when I was a kid. I remember having this bread. It's delicious.

This is a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes

  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 packages yeast
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk powder
  • 2 cups hot water

  1. Mix 2 cups of flour with sugar, salt, and yeast
  2. Add hot water and milk powder and mix with mixer on medium for 2 minutes
  3. Add shortening, potatoes, and 1/2 cup flour
  4. Mix for another 2 minutes
  5. Add remaining flour by hand
  6. Knead dough for 5 minutes
  7. Let rise for 1 hour until doubled in bulk
  8. Shape into 2 loaves and let rise for 1 hours
  9. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes
