Total time
The dough of this quick bread is quite sticky. When kneading, add just enough flour to bring it together into a soft shaped dough for baking.
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 1 round loaf
  • 2 large (3/4 pound each) russet potatoes, peeled
  • 3¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting and kneading
  • 1½ tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 1 egg (see post above for egg-free and vegan option)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, minced
  • ½ teaspoon caraway seeds
  1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice one potato and boil it for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and place the cooked potato in a large bowl. Mash it.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Grate the second potato onto a cloth. Wring the potato in the cloth to remove excess moisture. Add the grated potato, milk beverage, oil, egg, egg white, green onion, and caraway seeds to the mashed potato, and stir to just to combine. Gradually add the flour, stirring, until the dough comes together but is soft and sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Adding flour as needed, gently knead the dough to form an 8-inch round shape with slight dome.
  6. Place the dough on your prepared baking sheet. Cut a large “X” on top of the dough about ½ inch deep.
  7. Bake the bread for 55 minutes, or until golden brown. Let it cool ono a wire rack for 1 hour before serving.
