We have received a bunch of requests for us to share our Maori bread recipe, so here it is....
2 C. real warm potato water*
1/8 C. of canned pumpkin
31/2 - 4 C. Flour
1/2 C. sugar
1 Tbsp. Dry yeast
Place in your bread maker in this order and put it on Dough cycle. When cycle is finished, then place dough in greased loaf pan and let rise till almost double. You can leave the dough whole or split in half to make two loaves.
350 deg. for 30-40 minutes.
Tastes yummy when served warm with butter.
* For potato water I put a 2c water on the stove and place some instant potato flakes in it and stir til the flakes mixe well. This should only take a min so be sure to not let the water get too hot or it will effect the yeast.
To keep the crust soft, once I pull it out of the oven I rub butter on the top of the bread and it keeps it moist.
