This morning when I was driving my little girl through the neighborhood to school, I could see bright yellow Ash trees everywhere. Sugar Maple trees near by are turning yellow, orange, and red, like fireworks finale. At this time of the year, potatoes are fresh and abundant as well as pumpkins. They're great companions to bread too, adding more moisture and flavor.

今天早晨送K寶去上學,開車經過社區,看到到處都是一片耀眼金黃的Ash trees,糖楓也轉黃,橙,紅,映著家家戶戶翠綠的草地,好像風景明信片一樣,這個季節,也是馬鈴薯又新鮮又多的時期,麵包加入一些馬鈴薯,不但又軟又增加濃濃的馬鈴薯風味...

Potato Pinto Bean Buns (KitchenAid Professional 600 standmixer製作,無standmixer,也可以像我以前手做麵包揉麵方式製作,差別不大)
材料及作法:(12 buns)(1 cup=1杯=250ml, 1 tbsp=1大匙=15ml, 1 tsp=1小匙=5ml, 1 lb=454g)

2 cups unbleached bread flour
1+1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour ( I used 30% white whole wheat blend)
1 cup mashed potatoes
2 tbsp of grapeseed oil

A.將以上幾項,放在KA standmixer大鋼盆裡,用wire whisk攪拌均勻
Put all the above ingredients into the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.

1+1/4 cup warm water
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp active dry yeast(一般商用乾燥酵母,非速酵/麵包機酵母)

Mix all the ingredients from B and stir until all dissolves. With the ingredients from A in the mixing bowl, turn on the stand mixer and set the speed to 2. Gradually pour in the B mixture. Beat until the dough forms and becomes smooth, about 5 minutes. It's a sticky dough. Shape it into a ball. Use a little flour to prevent it from sticking. Transfer it into a greased bowl and cover with a lid or plasstic wrap, then place the bowl in a warm oven with a pan of hot water underneath for fermentation.

Pinto Bean Filling: Blend all the ingredients to smooth. Cook until thicken.
3 cups cooked Pinto beans
3/4 cup water
Brown sugar (Adjust to your liking. Need to be sweeter than usual.)
1-2 tbsp of oil


Let the dough rise until double/triple in size. Take the dough out and divide it into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into to a ball. Roll each ball to a disc. Divide pinto bean paste into 12 pieces. Place one piece of bean paste in a dough disc. Wrap it into a ball and flaten it. Use scissors to make 8 cuts on each dough ball.

Put the muffin pan with the dough in a warm oven with hot water underneath for fermentation. Let rise until double in size.

Preheat the oven to 350F, and bake for 20 minutes.
Depends on what kind of oven you have, you might need more or less baking time.
