Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup hot mashed potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups potato water
  • 1/2 cup butter or shortening
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 7 to 7-1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour

Directions

  • Put mashed potatoes into a bowl. Beat in the butter or shortening, then the egg, and a mixture of sugar, salt, and nutmeg. Beat until fluffy. Soften the yeast in the warm water; let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Beat yeast into potato mixture. Alternately add the flour and potato water to the yeast mixture, beating well after each addition. If necessary, add more flour to make a soft dough. On a floured surface, knead dough until smooth and satiny. Put into a greased bowl and grease top of dough. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch down dough and divide into two portions. Fit each portion into a greased 8x8x2-inch pan. Brush with melted shortening. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Makes 2 potato cakes.
