In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water, stir in the sugar and salt. Beat in the potatoes, butter, and3 1/2 c. of the flour; work together until smooth, approximately 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, invert the dough, and let rise for 1 hour, or until the dough is doubled in bulk. Punch down the dough, wait 15 minutes to relax the gluten in the flour, then turn onto a floured board. Divide the dough in half and shape into two loaves. Place in 2 greased 9x5-inch bread pans. Let rise until dough doubles in bulk. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Cool before slicing into thick pieces. Makes 2 loaves.

Best eaten after being freshly baked. Rolls freeze well prior to baking, after the first rising. Remove from freezer and let rise. Can be made into all shapes of rolls. Also good made in traditional manner as a loaf of bread. Can be used in bread machine by putting ingredients in as they are listed above. Doubles well.

Note: 2 1/2 tsp. dry yeast = 1 cake yeast.
