Sweet Potato Bread
Welcome to September’s Secret Recipe Club recipe! This month I was assigned Heather’s blog: Sweet and Savory Tooth. Heather’s blog has an insane amount of recipes ranging from sweet to savory to guilt-inducing to healthy. I debated the almond sticky buns for a very, very, very long time. Then I remembered that I’m suppose to be watching what I eat and that there was no way I could possibly justify making these insanely good look but oh-so-decadent goodies. For the same reason I tried to ignore the twenty-five (25!) cookie recipes on her blog, though I did linger on her Zucchini Cranberry Chocolate Chip cookies since I could somewhat justify the zucchini as being healthy. In the end I decided to make her Sweet Potato Braid Bread and talk about a winner! Not only did it make my entire house smell like fall, it tasted phenomenal. I did make a few modifications in order to be able to use my bread machine, making it even easier to have such an amazing bread.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups bread flour
- 2 tbsp dry milk powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato
- 3 tbsp honey
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp olive oil (can also use canola oil)
- 2 tsp yeast
- Add ingredients to bread machine per instructions.
I have a feeling this will bread will be regular in our house, it goes with everything and the ingredients are ones I almost always have on hand. Be sure to check out the rest of the recipes submitted for this month’s SRC!
