Caraway Bread




Introduction: Caraway Bread

This Hungarian bread is normally shaped round at bakeries but I always make it in loaf pan instead.

Step 1: Ingredients and Method

1 envelope active dry yeas

1 1/4 c. lukewarm water

4 1/2 c. flour

1 tbsp. salt

1 tsp. caraway seed

1/2 c. mashed potato

In a large bowl dissolve the yeast in 3/4 cup of the water.

Add in 3 tablespoons flour. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Stir in remaining 3/4 cup water, salt, caraway seed. Gradually add mashed potato and flour. Knead about 10 minutes.

Place in a well greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size (1 1/2 hours)

Punch down. Knead about 4 minutes. Place in a loaf pan. Flatten to fit and let rise again until double in size (30 minutes)

Brush top with water and cut 1/4 inch deep cross and bake 1 to 1 1/4 hours at 375 degrees.
