The standard variety of Irish potato bread is made from potato flour and wheat flour, and the ratio between the two different kinds of flour tends to vary.
Our ratio is typically 8 oz. mashed potatoes and then 3 oz. plain flour but this basically comes down to personal preference.
Germany, Peru and Ukraine all have their own types of potato bread as well; however the Irish variety is very popular and is often made into a variety of pastries.
