baked Walnut Potato BreadI received a book last Christmas called "Whole Grain Vegan Baking" and have recently have had a lot of fun making the recipes in it. The jist of these recipes is they replace the egg and dairy with potatoes, squash, and other vegetables. Also oils and vegan yogurt.


Total Time: 2 hours, including prep, cooking, cleanup, etc

Yield: 2 small loaves



  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2.5 cups white whole wheat flour or more (I opted for about 1/2 cup more)
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 6 oz mashed potato
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (at least) walnuts

This is a straight-up bread recipe. I ended up adding extra flour because it was too moist as is.


  1. In a medium size bowl, combine 1/4 cup of the water, molasses, and yeast. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to activate yeast.
  2. adding yeast to water and molasses
  3. Put flour and salt in the bowl.
  4. putting flour in bowl
    mixing flour, sugar and salt

  5. Mix the potato, remaining 1/2 cup of water, and oil in a medium bowl.
  6. adding potato to flour
    adding oil
  7. Pour potato, water, and oil into the flour mixture.
  8. adding liquid to flour
  9. Add yeast mixture.
  10. adding yeast mixtureto flour
  11. Knead on lightly floured surface for 8 minutes or so.
  12. kneading dough
  13. Add walnuts after 4 minutes of kneading time, until dough is smooth and pliable but not too sticky. If too sticky, add more flour.
  14. adding walnuts to Bread dough

  15. Shape into a ball. Place dough in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise for an hour and a half.
  16. Walnut Potato Bread rising in bowl
  17. After that time, punch down dough and divide into 2 equal parts. Flour your hands, and shape each into an approximately 8 inch loaf.
  18. forming 2 loaves of Walnut Potato Bread
  19. Place loaves on baking sheet, making sure bottom is well floured. Cover with plastic wrap.
  20. rising Walnut Potato Bread
  21. Preheat oven to 400 F. Remove plastic wrap and bake for 24 minutes, or until the loaves are deep brown in color and sound hollow when the bottoms are tapped.

There is no second rising time,other than the time it takes to preheat the oven?
Do you think I could use the dough cycle of my bread machine and continue shaping & baking as written? Bread machines require a different mixing order (liquids in first,then dry-yeast being last)?
