A SUPER TASTY DELICIOUS LIGHT MEAL:
To be frank this is one of my favourite light meal even though it takes time to make. It is the potatoes that make this bread tender, soft and moist.
As long as you put plenty of butter on this buffet dish, you will be surprise to see how fast the meal will disappear from the buffet table.
However, I must warn you that it takes a lot of time to be cooked. If you have the patience, creativity and dedication, you will find that it takes nearly 3 hours to cook.
The preparation time is roughly 20 minutes while the Rising time is about 1 hour 40 minutes, and baking time approximately 45 minutes.
