Ingredients

2-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
2-1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 packages fast-rise yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup butter
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup cooked mashed potatoes
1 cup chopped dates


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.


In a large bowl, combine together 1 cup of the whole-wheat flour, 1 cup of the white flour, the sugar, the undissolved yeast, and the salt.


Heat butter and water together until very warm (125F to 130F); gradually stir the warm liquids into the dry ingredients.


Stir in eggs, mashed potatoes, dates and the additional flours to make a soft dough; add a few more tbsp of the white flour if need be. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover and let rest on a floured surface for 10 minutes.


Divide dough into 4 equal pieces; shape into 4 slender loaves-- about 8-1/2 inches long. Set 2 loaves side-by-side in each of 2 well-greased 8-1/2-by-4-1/2-inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.


Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks.
