One Wife's Journey Through the Kitchen

Potato Bread

We love bread. Sandwiches, rolls, crumbs – we make it all. When moving into our house, I talked to my mom about buying a bread maker, when she graciously gave us hers. Though I don’t use it as often as I would like, I do enjoy making bread and experimenting with different types of bread. On this lovely Saturday morning, I decided to try potato bread, which I’ve only eaten once before.  I must say for my first try, it came out pretty nice. It doesn’t look as nice as other loaves, but it tastes amazing and was simple in the bread machine.

Potato Bread


  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup instant potato flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast


Add ingredients to bread maker (my machine works better if I add liquid first – the order of ingredients is order I added). Use basic white bread setting. Enjoy!
