10:50 am - A culinary experiment
H has had to work all weekend, so on Sunday I made him a chicken pie and a massive bowl of mashed potato to cheer him up. There was some mash left so this morning I made mashed potato bread in the bread maker. Which is a real thing by the way (for example). I used about half a pound of mash to somewhat over a pound of white flour, and quite a lot of sugar to pep the yeast up a bit. I've just had a slice and it's worked out well. It's very soft and spongy, rather fragile to cut and spread.

Interesting. I've seen boxty (of course!) and potato-based pizza, but not mashed potato bread, as such.

I just saw it in the bread book and thought what the heck. I think now it's been out the breadmaker a few minutes it shows a slight tendency to collapse on itself, but it's very tasty.

I had to look up what boxty was, but it looks good.
