This wonderful recipe is perfect for carb lovers like me!!
What You Need
1 Cup flour ( and more for dusting)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
2 Tbsp Butter ( cut into small pieces)
4 -6 Tbsp cream (you may need a little more)
3/4 Cup cold mashed potatoes
Non stick cooking spray
1 Egg ( whisked and set aside)
2 tsp Corn meal
Round pie or cake pan
Before You Start Preheat the oven to 425°, prepare a floured surface for kneading the dough. Spray inside of pan with non stick cooking spray.
Lets Make It! In a large bowl sift together the flour, salt, nutmeg and baking powder. Add the butter piece and blend together with a fork until it looks like fine breadcrumbs (you may need to add al little more butter). In a medium bowl combine the cream and mashed potatoes, mixing well. Add it to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork to mix well ( add 1–2 tbsp of cream if needed to make a soft dough.) Place the dough on your floured surface. Knead it with your hands until it appears smooth. Dust your rolling pin with flour and roll out to about 3/4 of an inch in thickness. Place the dough into the prepared pan. Using a butter knife drag the knife through the dough to form 6 pieces, do not cut all of the way through. Dip the basting brush into the beaten egg and brush evenly over the top of the bread. Then sprinkle with corn meal. Bake for 20 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.
Katies Tid Bits* try sprinkling with sesame seeds, or oatmeal instead of corn meal, Do you want to add a little spice? Substitute the nutmeg with dry mustard powder ( or dry wasabi powder for a whole new taste.
