1930’s Potato Bun Recipe

 

1930’s Potato Bun Recipe This potato roll recip or potato bun recipe is pretty vague when it comes to the ingredients and method. But the buns that we ended up with were so soft and delicious! These are the perfect dinner roll for any holiday party, or they would be great buns for smash burgers or slider buns.

 

Ingredients: 2 Tbsp lard 1 cup hot mashed potato 2 Tbsp sugar 1 tsp salt 2 eggs 5 cups water 1 compressed yeast cake Method: Melt 2 tablespoons lard with 1 cup hot mashed potatoes, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon salt. Beat 2 eggs well, and add about 4 cups water. When lukewarm, add 1 compressed yeast cake that has dissolved in 1 cup lukewarm water. Set to get light and foamy about 1½ – 2 hours. Then mix stiff and knead well. Let rise until twice its size. Then roll out, and cut whatever size or shape you wish. Let rise twice their size and bake in a moderately oven.

***Tips: – I cut this recipe in half and ended up with 4 dozen rolls – a lot of rolls. – I used 2 tsp (10 mL) of instant yeast instead of fresh yeast cake. – The recipe never mentions flour… but obviously it needs some. For a half recipe I used about 6 cups. – The dough is sticky and hard to knead – use a stand mixer if you have one. – They took about 12 minutes at 350ºF to bake

King Cake is Mardi Gras’ Most Famous Dessert

During Mardi Gras, bakeries like Gambino’s Bakery sell king cakes all across the city. Shops begin selling the pastry on January 6, or King’s Day, and through the eve of Mardi Gras, which is Tuesday, February 25, 2020. The pastry is eaten in Catholic countries around the world as a way to celebrate the coming of the three kings, but in New Orleans, it marks the Carnival season and the city has become synonymous with the dessert. Each pastry is decorated with frosting and sprinkles in purple, green and gold, and a small plastic baby is baked into each cake as part of a New Orleans tradition that started many years ago. Tradition goes that whoever finds the baby has to bring the king cake for the next party.
