Weekend Baking Session # 1

I bake almost every weekend. Commencing this weekend onwards, there will be Weekend Baking Session at Pusiva's Culinary Studio.

Was wondering of what to bake. Then, thought that it has been quite some time that I have not baked a bread. The next question was what bread to bake. Checked out my pantry and found that I have lots of potatoes. For this 1st round of WBS, I have decided to bake Potatoe Rolls.

Potatoe Rolls

What do we need:

2 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup mashed potatoes
1/2 cup warm water
1 egg
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp instant dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt

1 egg yolk
1 tbsp water

How do we do it:

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of the warm water.

Combine mashed potatoes, egg, butter, salt, sugar and the yeast mixture. Add flour alternately with the remaining 1/4 cup of warm water. Mix until well combined. Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead. Cover and let it rise for 1 hour in a warm place.

Divide dough into prefered number of equal sized pieces and form them into rolls. Place on a baking sheet and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or doubled in size. Brush the dough with the egg yolk and water mixture. Bake at 220° C for 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve potatoe rolls warm or cold with butter and/or jam.

I am someone passing by ur blog and show this potatoes bread. Like u i also have a lot potatoes so decided to bake one.
But unfortunately, my bread turn out to be so hard and not rising like yours. I dunno which part i went wrong as i follow your recipe.
I added 300g of flour (2.5cup).. is it correct? cos i not so sure abt cup measurement.

Awaiting for ur reply.
