Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

cakes, desserts

1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon dried lemon peel
2 1/4 cup flour
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped almonds

Scald milk in saucepan. Add shortening, salt, and sugar; stir until shortening is melted and sugar dissolved. Cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in warm water; add to lukewarm milk mixture and mix well. Add eggs and lemon peel to milk mixture. Add flour; beat until smooth. Cover and let rise for 6 hours. Punch down dough. Add raisins; knead until smooth and elastic. Generously grease brioche pan; sprinkle bottom with almonds. Pour dough into pan. Let rise, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425F. Bake babka for 20 minutes. Remove from pan immediately. Source: Creative Cooking Desserts, page 5
