This recipe helped me make my best loaf yet. The result was a nicely shaped, even loaf that tasted great, sliced easily and was, indeed, perfect for sandwiches. ~ Janet

What is Potato Bread?

Potato bread comes in many forms. According to Wikipedia, many parts of the world have their own version of potato bread. In Germany, Kartoffelbrot is a potato bread that may contain spelt and rye flour. In Scotland people enjoy tattie scones, also known as a tottie scones or potato scones. The list goes on and on!

My bread machine potato bread uses potato flakes to replace some of the flour in the recipe.

How to Make Bread Machine Potato Bread

I make this recipe in my two-pound machine. Note that you’ll be using the basic cycle with the medium crust setting.

Note that this bread recipe was last tested with a Zojirushi BB-PAC20. (Learn more about what bread machines I own and recommend.)

I live at 3,700 feet now. I first used this recipe when I lived at sea level. Yeast bread recipes usually need to be adjusted at an elevation over 3,000 feet. Despite living above 3,000 feet, I did not need to adjust the recipe for elevation.

If you need to adjust the recipe for higher elevations, check out my article on using bread machines in high altitudes.

Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the bread machine first.With my machine, I add the liquid first.

Check on the dough after five or ten minutes of kneading. Pop the top of the bread machine and look at the dough. It should be a smooth, round ball. The last two times I made this recipe, I needed to add more water. So be sure to check on this.

If the dough is too dry add liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right. If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks good.
