Maori Bread

We have received a bunch of requests for us to share our Maori bread recipe, so here it is....

Maori Bread

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.



  1. So glad you posted this recipe! It is definitely one of Chase's favorites he also devours it whenever you send it home with him. I also love the blog you guys do a great job!

  2. Thank you for posting this! I have it in the breadmaker now on dough cycle. Is it supposed to look more like the consistency of banana bread, or like a dough ball? Maybe I need to add more flour? Thanks!

    1. Aaaah!! Something went terribly wrong! It overflowed! I used Active Dry Yeast - 1 Tablespoon. Is this right, instead of 1 teaspoon? Maybe it's just the altitude (I'm in UT) or the way I did the potato water? Any suggestions? I really want to make this! Thank you!!

    2. ok, it is 1 tbsp of yeast, but it can depend on the type of yeast you are using. I am in utah too and it should work fine. it should be a ball of dough. I usually add flour to the bread machine as it starts mixing until it is the right consistency. if you need to, feel free to call me...702 343 3956.


    3. Well, the first batch actually turned out pretty good, even though it wasn't dough ball consistency! I'm going to try it again in a couple days and use more flour and a little more potato flakes in the water. Thanks for your help!!!

    4. glad it turned out! you will have to let me know how your second attempt goes.
