Potato Bread – Buns and LoavesFeb 18, 2019Posted by guestchefPrint
Back in 2014, one of our Wood Fired Forum members from Ottowa Valley, Canada came up with a delicious recipe for Potato Bread that we wanted to share with the larger community. Potato Bread generally has a heartier flavor than some other types of hearth bread. This recipe uses a combination of flours, oats, and potatoes for a one of a kind result!
Contributor “Fornax Hominus” wrote in his post:
“I started making potato bread about a year ago and my wife requests it every week… so I have made it about 50 times now! I’ve tweaked the recipe a bit, mostly trying to use the least amount of flour to keep the dough as moist as possible.”
Note: This recipe makes a lot of bread – 3 loaves + 16 buns! But don’t worry, it will be gobbled up quickly.

Additional Chef's Notes:
Baking Temperature: A 450°F oven works for me, but I have done hotter and cooler successfully.
Uses for Extra Heat: Since my oven is usually 600+°F for about an hour after raking the coals ... I often roast coffee, brown veggies, or some such till the oven gets down below 500°F.
