Sweet Potato Bread

Last Saturday, while ZH & ZY having their afternoon nap,
I sneak into the kitchen and try to look for something to do. baking of couse

So after looking through Alex Goh's The World of Bread,
I decided to try Potato Bread. without the help of breadmaker

Here is my lovely sweet potato bread:-

600g bread flour
70g sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp milk powder
4 tsp instant yeast
I've just notice that day 1 only put 1 tsp of instant yeast...OMG

Thank God it works out well :)

1 egg
270ml cold water

120g mashed sweet potato
60g butter

Instant custard

  1. Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) and knead to form a dough.
  2. Add (C), continue to knead to form a smooth and elastic dough.
  3. Make the dough into a ball. Put it in a bowl and cover with clear film. Put in a warm place to prove for 45 minutes.
  4. Mould dough into a ball and leave it to rest for a further 15 minutes.
  5. Divide the dough into several 30g pieces, mould them into balls and put them on a greased 23cm square baking pan, 16 pieces per pan. Makes 2 pans.
  6. Cover and leave to prove for 40 minutes or till twice the size.
  7. Brush with egg wash and pipe the custard to make a cross on top.
  8. Bake at 180C for 25-30 minutes on a low shelf in the oven. Serve.
  9. This dough is a bit sticky, so put some flour on your hands before you start to make it into balls.
