Purple Sweet Potato Bread

I seldom get to see purple sweet potato in any supermarket near my place. One fine day I spotted this little gem and immediately grabbed a few packets just in case they run out of stock again! hehehe....Its been quite some time I've made a squarish bread loaf. Therefore decided to make use some of the purple sweet potato for bread making :D Really love this pretty purple loaf! It remains soft, fluffy with slight chewy texture even the next day! 

Recipe ref : 'Original Flavour' by Carol
  • 200gm mashed purple sweet potato
  • 250gm bread flour
  • 50gm wholemeal flour
  • 1.5 tsp instant yeast
  • 50gm sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 150ml soymilk
  • 50gm unsalted butter, softened

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing, except butter, and knead into a soft dough. 
  2. Add in butter and knead till dough is smooth and elastic, about 15 mins.
  3. Shape into a ball, cover and proof in a warm are for 1 hour until double in size.
  4. Punch down dough to release gas. Transfer dough onto a floured working surface. Knead lightly. Divide into 2 equal portions. Cover and rest for 10mins.
  5. Dust rolling pin and roll out each dough into large rectangle. Roll up like a swiss roll. Turn the roll 90 deg. Flatten and roll out again about 40cm in length, 12cm in width. Roll up like a swiss roll, seal the edge firmly and place the roll into a pullman tin.
  6. Place the pan in a warm oven and proof for 1 hour until it fill up 90% of the pan. Cover the pan and bake in preheated oven at 200 deg cel for 40mins.
  7. Remove pan from oven and unmould the bread immediately onto a wire rack to cool down completely.

Such a lovely loaf! And I like the colour! Your bread looks really soft! I love eating breads like this with just a spread of salted butter. Thanks for linking!

Gorgeous looking bread...can I use regular whole milk instead of soy? if so is it the same amount of replacement?

Peng said...

Pcwidjaja...yes u may replace it with normal milk, depending on e moisture of the sweet potato, u may need more or less of the liquid.
