Potato Bread

For the last three months I've been making carrot and sunflower seed bread everyday and it kinda got boring by now. So I tried something new! I had some leftover potatoes and this went down a treat - with me. It turned out the kids don't like cumin seeds... They asked for the carrot bread again  :(
So if you don't like cumin seed either you can jusgt leave it out ;)

500 g flour
250 g cooked  potatoes, mashed
1 sachet dried yeast (7g)
150 ml milk
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp sugar
lard for greasing

Mix the sugar, yeast and milk. Leave until frothy. Then put all ingredients in a large bowl and knead. If too soft add more flour. Shape two breads and place on a greased baking tray. Leave to rise for about 45-60 mins.
Brush with water and place in a pre-heated (170 C) oven for about 60 mins or until the top is brown.r
