|1 kg||plain flour|
|1 kg||potatoes, peeled, washed and grated|
|2 packet(s)||dried yeast***|
|250 ml||tepid water|
In a bowl mix flour, yeast and salt. Drain the liquid of the potatoes and mix the potatoes with the flour mixture. Make a well in the middle, add in the eggs and the water and mix with the other the ingredients. Knead for a few minutes until the dough comes clean off the bowl. Cover and and allow to rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size.
Transfer the dough into 1 large or 2 small loaf pans, cover and leave for at least another 30 minutes in a warm place.
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan assisted).
Bake for 75 – 90 minutes; watch closely towards the end of the baking time, as every oven is different.
*** Of course you can use fresh yeast, as I do. The quantities differ from country to country. Here in Spain I use 25 g fresh yeast per 500 g flour.
This is an original recipe from my friend Verena’s gran. For me it tastes best when still a bit warm with fresh butter. After a couple of days it’s also fantastic as fried bread !
