No-knead Sourdough Potato Bread THM E, Sugar free, Dairy Free

Have you ever had Potato bread or rolls? An additional of potatoes keeps the bread/rolls moist and soft. This No-knead Sourdough Potato Bread combines sourdough and potatoes into a wonderful, moist, chewy bread. I love the texture and flavor!

No-knead breads are easy to mix together using a spatula and are one of my favorite. No mixer bowl to wash! Yay!! The dough is then allowed to ferment at room temperature for 5-7 hours depending when and how you want to bake the loaf. There are two ways of baking described in the recipe instructions below.

Yellow and red skinned potatoes are on plan as an E fuel source on the THM plan. They are a waxy potato. My favorite are the yellow Yukon Gold Potatoes.

To have a successful baking day you do need a mature starter. If you make a starter you will need to feed it for at least 3-4 weeks before you will be able to have a successful baking day. Trust me I have learned from experience. My Bernese Mountain Dogs loved those first super dense flat loaves. If you would like I do send small jars of sourdough starter by request. I do ask that you cover the cost of packing/shipping.

The texture of this bread is amazing and I love the color the turmeric gives it. This loaf reminds me of the potato bread you can buy in the grocery stores.

A bit of white flour is allowed in a loaf of bread. The bread will still be THM approved as an E. I choose to use King Arthur Bread Flour in my starter. This white flour will be fermented for 20+ hours until I bake the bread. That is reason I have chosen to use it in the starter. In the dough I use all whole grain white wheat flour.

I receive many questions about why I use vital wheat gluten . Here is the reason I add vital wheat gluten—whole grain flour is much harder to develop the gluten that is what causes dense solid loaves. Gluten is the structure that traps gases cause the loaf to rise. By adding vital wheat gluten you will have adequate gluten to trap the gases cause your loaves to rise the way they are supposed to.

Whole grain flour takes longer to absorb moisture than white flour. That makes it so easy to get your bread dough too stiff. If your bread dough seems stiff — every time you do a set of stretch and folds, dip your hands in water. This added moisture will help to loosen the dough.

This is what greeted my eyes when I lifted the lid of the baker. It’s just like opening a gift at Christmas. I found my clay baker at a thrift store for just a few dollars. I love it, but it has developed a crack with all my use.
