A cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee will get you started.
Step 1: Start With Putting a Cup of Cubed Potatoes on to Boil in 2 1/2 Cups of Water
* 2 cups warm potato water
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/2 cup butter
* 2 pks dry yeast
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup mashed potato
* 1/3 cup sugar
* Tbs salt
* 7 1/2 cups bread flour
Step 2: Proof the Yeast
Pour the water off the potatoes into a bowl. Let it cool enough for the yeast. I can NOT wait so I put it in the freezer until I can put leave my finger in it. Don't let it get too cold.
Sprinkle the yeast over the water with a little sugar. Let set till foamy.
potato (mashed with a fork)
MIX with mixer or by hand until well blended
Add flour a cup at a time. Put the salt in with the last cup. PSST... don't forget the salt.
Step 3: Turn Out Onto Well Floured Surface
Kneed till elastic, about 5 minutes.
Put in greased bowl and cover.
Let rise until double in bulk.
I make the dough the day before and put it in the fridge.
Step 4: The Filling
I used a cereal bowl half full of sugar
Sprinkle cinnamon to taste
Melt butter to make a paste
There are numerous ways to make this your own. You can spread the butter on and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon. Add raisins, nuts, etc.
ROLL dough to 1/4 inch and spread mixture with back of a spoon.
Roll up and cut with a piece of thread.
Step 5: Let Rise Until Double in Size
I made my 80 year old mom an apron with the recipe printed upside down so she can read it while she is baking.
BAKE 375 degrees until golden brown. About 15 minutes depending on how thick you cut them.
You can add a frosting with 2 cups powered sugar, 1 Tbs soft butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 3 Tbs milk. Or just leave plain if you are trying to eat and drive and don't want a mess on your shirt.
