  • ¾ cup mashed potatoes
  • 3 tbsp butter at room temperature
  • cups milk warmed
  • 1 tbsp instant yeast
  • cups bread flour all-purpose flour will also work
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs large
  • 2 tsp olive oil


  • Mash the butter and potatoes together until smooth. Then stir in the eggs and milk until well combined.
  • Add the yeast inside the mixture and mix well to dissolve.
  • Add the flour, salt, and sugar. Combine until you have a wet shaggy dough.
  • Cover the bowl and leave to rest for five minutes. After five minutes, open the bowl and mix again for a few seconds.
  • Cover and leave to rest for 45 minutes to one hour.
  • Grease the dough with olive oil. Place it inside a large bowl, cover with a plastic wrap or a tight-fitting lid and leave to proof for one hour or until almost tripled in size.
  • Punch down the dough to remove all the trapped air, then transfer it to a highly floured work surface.
  • Divide the dough into two equal parts, and shape them into loaves.
  • Place the dough into two greased 9×5 loaf pans – it’s very soft, so please handle with care.
  • Cover the pans with a damp kitchen towel and leave them to rise in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes or until about doubled in size.
  • Sprinkle some flour over the dough (optional) and bake in a 375F preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean.
