Madeiran Potato Bread Recipe

Hello Newbie here, love the site and have made the 10 minute banana bread so far. Have got into a routine to make my own bread every week for last 3 months now, VERY amatuer still traversing the steep learning curve, but OH is not complaining about the less well made loaves so far. Neighbours who have sampled are very encouraging too. But this post is a plea for a recipe, I have searched the web but not found recipes which come close enough to the fantastic flat breads we ate in Madeira, I believe they are made from cassava flour aswell as potato flour, anyone with a portuguese or brazilian relative who can help, please, thanks in advance T xx

Trudy,

Not sure exactly which potato bread recipe you're looking for but here's a couple of links, one is a recipe from Bernard Clayton and another from Mark Sinclairs site.  Check out Marks site he has videos on how to make some of the breads that he lists on his site, which are very helpful, especially if you're just getting into the craft.

On Mark's Back Home bakery site click on recipes and videos and take a look.  He's a professional baker who really knows what he's doing and has some really terrific tutorials (videos) and recipes, one of which is Portugese rolls.  Best of luck in your baking adventures.
