Potato Yogurt Bread

Diet.Chef's picture
  Baking potato 9 Ounce, peeled and quartered (1 Piece)
  Plain low fat yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Warm water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (105-115�F)
  Honey 2 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Active dry yeast 1⁄2 Ounce (2 Envelopes)
  Nonfat dry milk 2 Teaspoon
  Bread flour 4 1⁄4 Cup (68 tbs)
  Whole wheat flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 2 Teaspoon

1. Place the potato and enough water to cover it in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the potato is tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return the potato to the pan. Place over low heat and let steam-dry about 5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally. Puree the hot potato using a ricer or food mill, and let cool to room temperature.
2. Combine the yogurt, water, honey, yeast, and dry milk in a large bowl. Stir in the potato, bread flour, whole-wheat flour, and salt until the dough starts to gather around the spoon. Turn out the dough on a work surface; knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Add more bread flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the dough is too wet.
3. Spray a large bowl with nonstick spray; put the dough in the bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm, draft-free place until it doubles in size and holds an impression for a few seconds when pressed with a finger, about 1 hour.
4. Turn out the dough on a lightly floured counter. Deflate the dough by kneading it briefly. Shape the dough into a loaf, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free place.
5. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the loaf on a baking sheet, make a few shallow slashes across the top, and bake until the crust is golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom, about 45 minutes. Cool completely on a rack before serving.
