Potato Bread Rolls
Very good rolls can be made from
a mixture of boiled potatoes and
flour by adding shortening and
sugar. The following proportions
will yield one dozen small rolls:
Eight ounces of boiled and peeled
potatoes, 6 ounces sifted flour, 1-3
cake of compressed yeast, level
tablespoon salt7 2 tablespoons luke
warm water, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2
Two tablespoons of powdered milk
added to the dough will greatly im
prove the quality of the rolls. Al
though milk itself or cream may be
used, it must be tforne in mind that
they will increase the liquid content.
Boil, peel and mash the potatoes.
'Add in order the salt, the powdered
milk (if used), the yeast rubbed
smooth and mixed with the water,
and, lastly, two tablespoons of flour.
Let this mixture stand at a temper
ature of about 86 degrees (Fahren
heit) until the dough begins to col
lapse. Add to this sponge the-butter, the
sugar and the remainder of the flour
and, if necessary, enough more flour
to make a very stiff dough.
Knead thoroughly until a smooth
dough, which is no longer sticky, has
been formed. Set back to rise again,
and when the dough has trebeled in
volume knead lightly, form into
small balls and place, not too close
together, in greased pans. Allow to
rise until in volume and bake 20 min
utes in moderately hot oven.
(Uncle Sam's suggestions about
how to take care of bread will be giv
en in The Day Book tomorrow.)
