It's time again for the 17th edition of Bread Baking Day. A very popular event that originally was created by our lovely Zorra from "Kochtopf AKA 1x Umrühren bitte". I've participated lots of time, I just really love this event and this month I have the great honor to be the hostess. It's my first hosting job on the net ever, so this is a very exciting for me.
Last month there were some terrific breads baked with cheese and Temperance from "High on the hog" did a wonderful job hosting that. Thanks a lot Temperance! Don't forget to check out the ROUND-UP she made, to get inspired and maybe bake some of the wonderful entries yourself.
This month it's all about: "BREAD AND POTATOES".
Potatoes are a great ingredient in bread. It's not only good for you with vitamins, minerals and fiber (if you use the skin too), it also makes your bread very moist and gives soft crumbs.
You can use mashed potatoes, dried potato flakes or powdered, potato flour, slices or chuncks of potato in your bread: roasted, cooked or steamed ..and add some potato water to make your bread extra moist and gives it a soft crumb. You can put the potatoes in your bread or on top. You can use all sorts of potatoes: waxy or fluffy ones and don't forget sweet potatoes.
Feel free to use potato water in your bread too, but just the water you boiled the potatoes in is not enough to participate, so please use some other form of the potato too. Every kind of bread is fine, panloaves, pizza, filled breads, baguettes, bread rolls.... you name it. Making bread with potatoes is also a great way to use up those 2 or three left over boiled potatoes from the night before.
Here are the details on how to enter:
- Bake a bread of your choice with potatoes in the recipe, post about it on your blog and link back to this post.

- You can write your post in English (preferred!), German, Dutch or Italian. But keep in mind that most readers will (only) understand English, so if you write your post in another language, it's highly appreciated if you include a translation in English as well, so more can enjoy your post.
- Non-Bloggers can also participate. Send your recipe and a picture of your bread and some personal info (name, location), so I can include you in the round-up.

Enough said! Let's bake!
Good luck and I'm looking forward to all the entries.
