Irish Potato Bread
- 2 medium or large russet potatoes
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons green onion, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting and kneading
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Heat oven to 375° F.
- Peel potatoes. Slice one potato and boil in a saucepan for 15 minutes, or until tender. Remove the potato from the saucepan into a large bowl. Mash potato then set aside.
- Grate the second potato onto the cloth. Wring potato in cloth to remove excess water. Add grated potato to mashed potato in a large bowl. Add egg, egg white, oil, milk, onion, caraway seeds, 3 1/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is soft and sticky.
- Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Adding flour as needed, knead dough to form the 8-inch round shape with a slight dome. Place dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cut a large “X” on top of the dough about 1/2 inch deep.
- Bake for 55 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack 1 hour before serving.
