  1. Bring the water, butter, sugar, buttermilk powder, and salt to a simmer in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from the heat, mix well, and let cool to between 105 and 110 degrees F (41 to 43 degrees C). Sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until the yeast begins to form a creamy foam. Stir in the instant mashed potato flakes, and mix well.
  2. Pour the yeast mixture into the work bowl of a standing mixer with a dough paddle, and slowly incorporate 8 cups of bread flour into the liquid, adding the flour 1 cup at a time.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead for about 8 minutes, adding the remaining flour to the dough as you knead. When the dough is smooth and elastic, form into a ball, and place into a large greased bowl. Turn the dough over in the bowl to grease the top, cover with a cloth, and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, until doubled.
  4. Spray 2 9x5 inch loaf pans with cooking spray. Punch the dough down, divide into two pieces, and shape each piece into a loaf shape. Place the loaves in the baking pans, seam sides down, cover with a cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Bake bread for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are golden brown and the loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to a wire rack to cool.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Now available on the market are flavored instant mashed potato flakes including four-cheese, Southwestern, extra-butter and so many other flavors. There is a garlic mashed potato which REALLY tastes great if you are making an Italian type of dinner. However, I add three cloves or 1 teaspoon of minced garlic to add more of a kick.

This is a very tasty and fluffy bread. Instead of using buttermilk, I used milk and it worked out just as well.

I've made this twice, the first time exactly as the recipe reads. It was really good (worth 4 stars). I prefer my bread to be slightly saltier and a bit richer. So, I tweaked it just a tad and...

I halved this recipe and made 12 large rolls. I replaced 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup yogurt instead of buttermilk powder and it turned out to be one of the best breads I've ever made.

I didn't have buttermilk powder, so did 3 cups water + 1 cup milk soured with 1 Tbsp vinegar. I mixed everything by hand in a bowl (no aids in my kitchen unfortunately) and there was no way...

easy to make did not last long in the house great taste
