One Who Said Ha'adamah or Mezonot on Bread

One Who Said Ha'adamah or Mezonot on Bread
Day: Thursday
Date: February 4, 2016
Parshat: Mishpatim
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 206

A person who said ha'etz on bread needs to say a new beracha since the beracha of ha'etz has no relevance to bread. However if he said ha'adamah there are some poskim who maintain that his beracha is valid. Likewise, if he said mezonot on bread there are poskim who maintain that it is also valid. There is a concept called "safek berachot lehakel," or, an uncertainty regarding Berachot is ruled leniently. Therefore, even though a number of poskim do not agree that ha'adamah or mezonot can be a valid beracha on bread, because of the concept of safek berachot lehakel no new beracha is required in such a situation.
