  1. Peel the potatoes. Then cut them into quarters or simply cut them into large pieces. Remember that the smaller you cut the potatoes, the faster they will cook.
  2. Add the potatoes to a pot of cold water and boil them until they are completely soft and cooked.
  3. Drain the potatoes with a strainer and leave to cool. Reserve the water of the boiled potatoes to add to the dough.
  4. When the potatoes have cooled, transfer them to a large bowl and mash them with a potato masher.
  5. Combine beaten eggs and sugar in a countertop mixer.
  6. Then add the butter, yeast, salt, mashed potatoes, potato juice, and milk. Mix all the ingredients. Blend for about 5 minutes until the mixture is smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl if necessary.
  7. Continue kneading the bread dough at medium speed until the dough forms a ball.
  8. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl. Refrigerate the dough overnight, covered with plastic wrap to allow the dough to rise.
  9. After 24 hours, the dough should at least double in size. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and divide it into two long pieces.
  10. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  11. Place the dough in the lightly greased pans. Bake the loaves for 25 minutes. Then cover the pans with aluminum foil. Bake them for another 15-20 minutes until the bread is golden brown.
  12. After the bread is baked, remove the pans from the oven. Place it on a cooling wire and let it cool for about 5 minutes. Then remove the loaves from the pans and leave them to cool completely on the wire rack.
  13. Slice and serve them.

  • Let the dough rise overnight. For a more delicious and fluffy dough, leave it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight. It is also an option to quickly raise the potato bread dough in a warm place. It's best to leave it in the refrigerator overnight, though.
  • Use a stand mixer to knead this bread dough. Potato bread dough is sticky. Therefore, it is difficult to knead by hand. If you don't have a countertop mixer or bread maker, you can work with less dough. In this way, you can use a hand mixer.
  • Use a potato grinder. Use a potato grinder to get smooth mashed potatoes.
  • Wait for the potatoes to cool before using them. Make sure it is completely cool before adding the mashed potatoes to the dough mixture. Otherwise, the hot potatoes can kill the yeast.
  • Use the remaining potato water. After boiling the potatoes, add the remaining potato juice to the bread dough. The starch in the potato juice will make the bread more moist.
  • You can use milk or buttermilk instead of potato water.

How To Store Potato Bread?

We’d suggest storing potato bread in an airtight container and keeping it at room temperature in a dark spot. This will prevent the bread from going stale or developing pan. Storing in the refrigerator is not the best option, as bread can dry out and lose moisture.

Alternatively, you can wrap the pieces in cling film and freeze them to keep the bread fresh for months. When you want to use it, thaw it while still in the film, and then unwrap it—this will allow the bread to reabsorb any moisture it may have lost while in the freezer.
