Streusel Potato Coffee Cake - or IS it bread??

November 2011

This coffee cake/bread was made from a recipe based on one in "One Potato, Two Potato" by Roy Finamore. The dough was a breeze to make and knead. Baking it was a little less breezy. And that's putting it mildly.

The dough was lovely to work with - a tiny bit sticky and not at all liquid.

I can't remember how many times I checked the inner temperature after the allotted 20 minutes of baking were up. On the outside, the bread appeared to be done. Each time, as the withdrawn thermometer was completely covered in molten dough, there were countless "10 minutes more", until finally finally, the thermometer came out cleanly and bread appeared to be done.

The one in the quiche pan suffered the most because of being first to be stabbed with a thermometer when the two loaves weren't even close to being done. It immediately deflated and I quickly put both loaves back in the oven....

The one in the spring-form pan fared a little better, in spite of the fact that as it was oven-springing just after going into the oven, it hit the roof of the oven.

And still, even though the thermometer indicated that the bread was "done", both loaves still sank dramatically. And the inner crumb of the one in quiche pan was decidedly NOT done. (The other loaf is languishing in the freezer. Once it comes out, we'll learn if it's a little more baked through or not.)

We cut the quiche pan one in to wedges and happily, after toasting the wedges and slathering them with butter, the bread was delicious.
