Oh So Delicious...Potato Sour Cream & Chive Bread

Saturday, 9 May 2009

Thank you all for your blessings and wonderful comments! The wedding was indeed very memorable. The photographer did a wonderful and for those who are interested, he is Edmund Tham, you can check out his work here. As for our honeymoon pictures, I will post that later I promise. For now, I'll resume my usual food blogging routine.


Yes, I can finally start baking those yummy and fattening desserts again, food with lots of cheese and cream, here I come! I've been dying to try this bread recipe ever since I saw it on Chuck's blog. Potatoes, sour cream, chives...how can you resist? Just look at how Cynthia had hers...yum yum! After baking some myself, I have to agree with Cynthia - you have got to try this recipe! The smell from the oven is just so deliciously tempting! I swear you can taste it if you lick the air. Our stomachs were growling so loudly while trying so hard to resist opening the oven and gobbling down the whole tray of buns.


potato chive bread


You can find the recipe here. I used 2 cups of mashed potatoes instead of 1 1/2 cups, mainly because boiled too many potatoes and I didn't want to eat boiled/ mashed potatoes for breakfast. Used 1 cup of chives instead of 1/2 cup because I love chives. I managed to make about 10 buns, each weighed about 70-75g before baking, and a huge loaf of bread. I used milk instead of egg white to brush the top of the loaf.


Sorry for my ugly shaped buns - need more practice here! The crust was really crispy fresh from the oven while the inside was so light and fluffy. But I thought the taste wasn't as strong as it smelled and it was not salty enough. On the second day, I microwaved it for about 20-30s and it was sooo delicious. The flavours developed and it tasted great! I had that for my lunch for four days in a row and was a bit upset on the fifth as I had nothing to look forward to.

I would strongly recommend that you heat it up before eating as the bread was quite hard when eaten cold. The bread became so soft and light after seconds of microwaving. This recipe is a keeper and I will definitely make it again soon!

Best eaten fresh out of the oven, but a quick spin in the microwave 3 days afterwards still left it pretty good to eat.

I found your blog when browsing the food blogger pool on Flickr...I'm so glad I found it too because this bread looks amazing! I think your buns are perfect looking..they have the look of artisan bread - thats the difference between store bought and lovingly made with your own hands. I would earn huge brownie points from my husband making this, will have to fetch the ingredients this weekend. Thanks so much for posting it!
