I now know the difference

You know that loaf of bread that I made on Thursday that was so repulsively nasty? The one that was so incredibly ugly? The one that I fed to the dogs and hubby asked why I was poisoning them?

I figured out what went wrong.

You know how some recipes almost scream at you to use potato starch not potato flour?

Well, this one didn't.

Yep, I used the wrong one.

Which explains why it tasted so bad because apparently potato flour has a stronger flavor.

I am just glad that I wasn't able to make another loaf immediately - because I was out of potato flour otherwise I don't know when I would have figured it out. or if I ever would have. Since I have been taking notes on how much the flours weigh (to make life simpler), I know what I did.

Luckily the 3 flour mix called for either corn starch or potato starch and I used corn starch otherwise the 3 flour mix would be messed up too.

So I am going to make another loaf.

This time I am going to use the right flours.

  1. Hello again. Just found your cooking blog! How fun!
    I was just looking online the other night for substitutes for Tapioca starch. I learned that Tapioca Starch and Tapioca flour are the same - BUT not the potato stuff..
    You poor thing.. but you know.. accidents happen.

    My DH is just hoping a find the magic recipe soon. I made one yesterday and it was doing GREAT in the bread machine.. until.. I unplugged it by accident. UGH. It was all downhill from there. Maybe I'll get it right today.

    Have a blessed day!
