Pćo Doce

  • 2 pkg  active dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup warm potato water

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 cup mashed potatoes

  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 3/4 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

  • 8 to 10 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in potato water.  Stir in the 3 tablespoons sugar,
potatoes and ginger.  Cover; let rise until doubled.  Scald milk;
add salt and cool to lukewarm.  In small bowl of electric mixer,
beat eggs; gradually beat in the 1 3/4 cups sugar.  Stir into
yeast mixture.  Add butter and mix well.  Stir in 2 cups of the
flour, then milk.  Add 2 more cups of the flour; beat 5 minutes. 
Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough.  Place on
lightly floured board and knead into remaining flour until dough
is smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Place in greased
bowl, turning in grease top.  Cover; let rise until doubled.

Grease four 9 X 5 X 3-inch loaf pans.  On a lightly floured board,
divide dough into fourths.  Shape each fourth into a loaf; place
in prepared pans.  Cover; let rise until doubled.  Preheat electric
oven to 325 degrees F.  Bake for 45 minutes or until done.
