1 small round loaf

This is perfect with soup on a chilly winter’s evening. Pop it in the oven while the soup is simmering, and make sure you eat it warm! It even stands up to crumbling or dunking into the soup. Try a piece with a smear of butter and a drizzle of honey – perfect!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
225 grams plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 medium floury potatoes, peeled and cut into 2 cm cubes, about 350 grams
1/4 teaspoon salt, for the cooking water
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
75 grams finely grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon butter, melted
or milk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle with a little plain flour.
  2. Put the potatoes and salt in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until very tender, about 12 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan over low heat for 1 minute to ensure any excess water has evaporated. Put the potato through a ricer or mash until smooth.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and sea salt until combined.
  5. Measure 230 grams of mashed potato into a large mixing bowl. Pour in the olive oil and beat until creamy. Add the eggs and mix until completely incorporated. Stir through the parmesan. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  6. On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough gently until it just comes together. Shape into a round loaf and score the top into 8 wedges with a sharp knife. Brush the top of the loaf with 1 teaspoon melted butter or milk.
  7. Bake until golden, about 30 minutes. When cooked, the loaf will sound hollow when tapped.
