The right way to make mashed potato

A few weeks ago I tried to make mashed potato. We didn’t have a masher utensil so I decided to give it a go with a fork. It was all lumpy and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get the kids to eat it so I had a bright idea

“I know- I’ll put it in the Nutribullet!” 

Bad idea. Do you know what happens to potato when it’s blended at high speed? Well let’s just say you should be glad I didn’t take a photo of the result. It became like glue. It looked revolting. I still served it up and the girls ate a few spoonfuls but I really don’t know how!

Masha

I was relaying this story to a PR friend as we discussed how I can bake with my eyes closed but cooking was far from my expertise. She told me I had to give the Masha a try and then she very kindly sent me one to play with.

Now, I’m not a one trick pony sort of a gal. I like my gadgets to be multi functional. They have to be seriously worthwhile if they’re going to take up space in my tiny kitchen and the Masha certainly is. It’s quick to assemble, easy to use, powerful and most of all makes the most delicious mashed potatoes ever. You can use it for all sorts of things like cake mixes, sauces, baby food, whisking up egg whites and batters and it’s just as easy to clean.

So last night we made some mashed potatoes and Darcey helped me to video the masher and show you how it’s childs play to do – note how she mentions the Nutribullet sludge. I don’t think I’ll ever live that one down.

So if you want really fluffy mashed potatoes I can really recommend the Masha

  1. Emma,

    When I press play I get a message ‘ please sign in to view this video’. It doesn’t say what to login to or give me an option to do this. I’m using an iPad don’t know if that makes any difference.

    • Oh I’m so not used to Youtube! Thanks for the heads up. I had the video it set to private! You can see the mash now!

      Thanks

  2. Hi Emma, I’m making an 80th birthday cake for my Gran. She likes lemon sponge. However, will need to make it in advance as travelling to set up surprise party 3 days before event. I’ve tried your lovely Madeira but wonder if she’d prefer a spongier crumb. What recipe do you suggest to stay fresh under the fondant for a week ? There’ll be 50 at party. Many thanks
