  • 200 g Potato or Sweet potato

  • 1 tsp Yeast
  • 15 g olive oil
  • 300 g bakers flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Recipe's preparation

    Potato Bread
  1. Wash and chop the potato/sweet potato into 2 cm chunks (I leave the skin on).


    Place the potato in the simmering basket and add 1000g water to the TM bowl. Cook for 12-15 minutes, Varoma, Speed 2 or until just cooked. Remove the basket and discard the water.


    Insert the butterfly. Place the potato into the TM bowl and mash for 20-30 seconds, speed 3-4 or until smooth. Add the cold water and mash for a further 5 seconds, speed 3. Remove the butterfly.


    If the temperature has dropped to 37C or below, add the remaining ingredients and knead 2 minutes Closed lidDough mode. If the temperature is above 37C, wait until it has cooled to 37C then proceed with this step.

    Check the consistency of the dough, if it is too sticky, add more flour 50g at a time, if it is too dry add more water 20g at a time. Knead for 30s after any additions.


    Turn the dough out onto a thermomat or floured surface and knead briefly to form a tight ball. Wrap and leave to prove for 30-40 mins or until doubled in size.


    Knock down and shape into desired shape on a baking tray or place into bread tin (I use a small tin, 340g, 18x11x10cm). Leave to prove for a further 30-40 mins or until just at the top of the tin. Preheat oven to 200C.


    Slash the top of the loaf (optional) and place bread into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. I switch my oven to bottom element only for the last 10 minutes. 




Accessories you need



Try adding some rosemary or thyme for more flavour. Chop the herbs with the flour before (10 seconds speed 10) cooking the potato.
