I know I am sounding like baking bread is as simple as baking anything ordinary, but believe me, it is. Once you get hold of it, you will fall in love with baking your own bread. I have tempted you enough now and I am sure after reading this you will go and bake at least a simple bread.
Now coming to this bread it happened without any pre-planning. Stumbled upon a recipe on Pinterest. The potato bread looked too good to not to bake. I have baked a batch and the moment D saw them, he packed and took them to the office. I didn’t have the chance to take even pictures. Then I baked again the next day and even the second batch disappeared in no time.
I have adapted the recipe from The Best Potato Bread. I exactly halved the recipe. Instead of instant potato mash, I used 1 large boiled potato. I baked this bread with bread flour and with normal all-purpose flour too. Though the ones baked using bread flour were buttery soft,rich and moist, the ones I baked using all-purpose flour were pretty good too. So I don’t mind baking them again with APF.
I was in a mood to experiment and wanted to try something new, so I went for crescent rolls. You can make the regualr loaf, bread rolls even little spiral rolls(just like Cinnamon roles). The dough is pretty easy to work with. The bread itself is sweet and buttery, so you can even skip the Nutella part.
In the below recipe the quantities mentioned in the bracket is half of the original amount. I have added for the convenience.
