A well-rounded affair, potato bread with tomato butter
Preparing the dough for the popular Pull Apart Bread is not difficult at all: To do this, wash 200 grams of floury potatoes and cook for around 25 minutes. Then drain, allow to cool briefly, peel while still warm and press through the potato ricer.
Crumble a quarter cube of yeast in 160 milliliters of lukewarm water and stir. Mix 375 grams of flour and some salt in a bowl and #Yeast Add the mixture with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the mashed potatoes. Knead the ingredients into a smooth dough using the kneading hooks of the hand mixer. Dice 50 grams of softened butter and knead in as well. Then cover and let rise in a warm place for about an hour. Knead the dough again after it has risen and shape into small dough balls of 30 grams each.
Now put the dough in the tin: To do this, line the bottom of the springform tin with baking paper, grease the edges with butter and place an ovenproof bowl in the middle of the tin. This creates a round recess in which a bowl of tomato butter can later be served. Place the balls of dough next to each other in the tin around the bowl and leave to rise in a warm place, covered, for another 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 175 degrees top and bottom heat. As soon as the dough balls have risen, you can sprinkle some grated mozzarella on top and bake everything on the middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes.
Once the plucked bread is in the oven, it’s time for the tomato butter. To do this, cream a packet of butter with a hand mixer for about three minutes. Then season with chopped oregano, two tablespoons of tomato paste and some salt and pepper. Finally place the butter in the middle of the cooled bread. Enjoy.
