I am always Looking forward to experiment when it comes to bread baking . I had some millet flour sitting on the countertop since quite some time so decided to add it with bread flour & potato and baked a bread .
I am very happy and satisfied with the result . You can definitely get a hint of nutty Millet . I just wish that I had added some toasted millet on top before baking the bread as it would have definitely brought out some texture & would have given dimension to the bread .
For this bread we will be needing
1 large baking potato ( boiled & peeled ) Or 1 cup mashed potato
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1/2 cup + 1/3 cup warm water
3 cups AP Flour Or Bread flour Or whole wheat flour
2 cups Millet flour
Boil potato until soft. Press the potato through a food mill Or a grater .
Scald milk ( You bring some milk to the boil and then let it cool before using it in a recipe ) and combine with 1/2 cup warm water. Combine liquids and potato with butter, salt, and sugar in small bowl. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, combine yeast and warm water, and set aside until foamy. When potato mixture has cooled, add yeast mixture. Add flour and knead with a dough hook, on an electric mixer, until smooth and glossy, about 7 minutes.
Transfer to a buttered bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside in warm place to rise about 1/2 hour. Punch dough down and briefly knead. Butter a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan. Place dough in pan, cover with plastic, and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 40 minutes, until bread sounds hollow when tapped.
