What is this bread (other than huge)?

A friend sent me some photos of his bicycle trip across Hungary.  There were stops for wine and bread along the way.  Check this loaf out.

Looks to me like Kenyer ...  ;-)


Seriously, potato breads are popular Hungarian menu items so I suspect that's what you've found here.


I have read about Hungarian Gastronomic Festivals and it looks to me like your friend rode his bicycle into one of those celebrations.

Hungarian Kenyer recipe, anyone?

Leaves a lot of questions but that just makes it a challenge, right?

Thanks for the recipe.  It looks super easy.  I'll be trying it this weekend. 


I'll probably have to make two or three loaves, despite their size,  as those in my house are real bread eaters.

Love to see how you fill in the blanks (temp, timing, etc).   I have a feeling that once you get the blanks filled in you would have a really good bread there.   I know my friends love potato bread for sandwiches.
