[bbd] – Guinness and Potato Bread
It’s time for Bread Baking Day again.
When I read them theme announced at Lien’s blog I was very excited ’cause I immediately knew which bread I wanted to bake.
There was one potato bread lounging in my links for some time now and I wanted it to try ’cause it has my favourite ingredients: Guinness and potatos…
4.75 cups spelt flour
4 mashed potatoes
0.5 cup luke warm Guinness
7 grams (1 packet) yeast
2 tsps salt
2 tbsps olive oil
1 – Dissolve (completely) yeast in the Guinness
2 – Mix with potatoes, oil, and salt
3 – Gradually add all of the flour.
4 – Kneed until smooth, then cover for half an hour to rise.
5 – Roll out, either into two large rounds, or into 16 rolls and place on a floured towel, cover and let rise for 20 more minutes.
6 – Bake at 200°C until done.
The bread is wonderful. Rich, moist and very tasty. I have baked it again twice and still like it. I could not imagine a potato brad would be so yummy, I should have tried this earlier!
Thanks Lien for making me step out of my comfort zone once again. :)
