My first pototo bread

My first pototo bread

My wife was asking me to make a "soft" white bread, so I hacked together a potato bread.  I'm not really sure what the recipe was, but there was WAY too much potato.  The dough was super sticky, but I forged ahead.  Oven spring was fantastic, but the bread was so soft the bread fell back in on itself upon cooling (the slash mark was strecthed flat upon removal from the oven).

 my first pototo bread attempt


It tasted quite good, but the middle seemed too moist.  It wasn't doughy/uncooked, but just way too moist.  I'll have to up the bake time next time I try this.
