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.

That makes sense. My recipe said add two teaspoons of sugar, but it certainly puffed up very fully. Also I used 4 big spoons of olive oil (it said use sunflower) and that imparted quite a pleasant flavour. Anyway, it all worked much better than I would have thought. I think I will try more vegetable breads.
