Potato Bread - German recipe

original recipe link
I love the Hairy Bikers German Potato Bread, but this recipe seems less complicated.

Potato - 1 Medium (Maris Piper pref.)
All Purpose flour -  1 and 1/4 Cups
Instant yeast - 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Water -  2 - 3 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp

Wash and slash the potato and cook in micro. for 4 mins.

Soak in cold water and peel. It will be fork tender, crumble in a mixing bowl.

Add flour, salt, instant yeast, oil. Mix everything well.

Slowly add water and knead to a soft dough. Then transfer to the counter and knead for another 10 - 15 mins, until the dough is very soft.

Let the dough rest in a well oiled bowl, loosely cover with klingfilm, for an hour or until it doubles.

Once it doubles, punch it down and shape it loosely into a ball. Do not handle the dough hard, just loosely roll it into a ball.

Grease a baking pan with oil place the ball of dough into it and let it sit for another 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220 C, make some small (shallow) cuts on top of the bread.
Bake the bread for 30 minutes or until the top is well browned.
Take it out of the oven, remove the bread to a wire rack, let it cool completely.

Slice and serve with cheese or butter.
