Baking Powder Bread (bitefromthepast)

4 c flour
1 t salt
1 T sugar
7 t baking powder (yes 7 t, not a typo)
1 medium-sized, cold, boiled potato (can sub 3/4 c mashed potatoes, no more)
2 c milk (can sub water)

Boil a potato. After draining the potato, rinse it with cold water and then filled the saucepan with ice water and let it sit another 20 min. Viola, cold boiled potato! Sift flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Grate potato into the flour mix. Mix potato into the flour, it will resemble course crumbs. Add milk and mix the whole combination until the dough is smooth and soft. Turn it into a greased loaf. Smooth the top with a knife dipped in melted butter. Allow the loaf to stand in a warm place for 30 min. Bake at 375 F for 40 min. The taste is unique, sort of like a biscuit in slices. It’s really delicious with butter and jam, very soft and moist. This is a great recipes if you want homemade bread in a hurry. Note: This recipe comes from the New Dr. Price Cookbook, published in 1921 by the Royal Baking Powder company.
