  1. Activate the Yeast:

In a bowl, combine warm water, active dry yeast, and a pinch of sugar. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy.

  1. Create the Dough:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooled mashed potatoes, activated yeast mixture, granulated sugar, and salt.

Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the dough rise for another 30-45 minutes.

  1. Preheat and Bake:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Once the dough has risen again, brush the top with melted butter for a golden crust.
Bake the potato bread in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until it’s nicely golden-brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped.

  1. Cooling and Enjoying:

Remove the bread from the oven and set it aside to cool for a few minutes in the pan.
Allow the bread to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

  1. Serving:

Slice the cooled potato bread and serve it with your favorite spreads, soups, or enjoy it on its own.
