Japanese Sweet Potato Bread

Does peri menopause affect our lives at some point? I believe so.. and its happening to me. I suddenly find myself into a lot of sleepless nights, headache and my brain keeps working. You know what? it brought a new job to me, I resigned from the previous one and here I am about to start in a new environment. Yes, Im turning 50, I am going to be a golden woman and I just signed a contract for a new job.. can you believe that!!! 
After the signing, I leisurely walk and enjoy the night then I treat myself to a Thai Beef Bowl and Thai Milk Tea. They're both good. Yummy!

Here is what I brought for you bloggers. Enjoy!
I swear this is the simplest way of making your own bread at home and you know it has sweet potato, yes, sweet potato it is ! I always wanted to make my own bread and its a dream come true. Nowadays we rarely buy bread. I prepare the dough before going to bed and by next morning we have 2 big loaves of bread on our table, and its wonderful! That kind of a feeling when you make your own bread is so irreplaceable, I always look forward to do it.

Sweet Potato Bread
Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups bread flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 envelope rapid rise yeast
1 cup mashed Japanese sweet potato 
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp butter
2 eggs
Direction:
Set aside 3/4 cup of bread flour. 
In a large mixer bowl, combine the rest of the flour together with salt, yeast,  and nutmeg.
Combine mashed sweet potato, milk, honey and butter. 
Microwave the mixture for 1 min and 20 seconds or to the point that its hot but you can still manage to stick your index finger..yeas, that hot.
Add this mixture to the flour mixture and beat using dough hook for 2 minutes.
Add the eggs and beat again for 2 minutes
Add the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Beat for 12 to 15 minutes.
Transfer to a greased bowl. Cover and let it rise for 90 minutes.
After 90 minutes, shape the dough into 2 loaves and placed in greased pans. Let it rise.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven or 180 for 35 minutes.
Cover the top with foil after 25 minutes to prevent from over browning.
Continue baking for 10 minutes.
Remove from pans and brush with melted butter if desired.

Ahhh... thats why I love bread..you can just eat it on its own. These loaves wont even last until tomorrow. As long as my family want, I will make it.

Japanese sweet potato is the best for making this bread. Theyre sweet and light, it makes the bread soft and moist.

  2. That looks delicious. I once made muffins using butternut squash and I'm thinking this would have a similar taste and texture. Pinned.

  9. What a delicious looking loaf Mareliz! We make our own bread too but I've not made a version like this. I'm guessing from the colour, that Japanese sweet potatoes are not orange fleshed like the sweet potatoes we have here in the UK? Thanks for sharing with us at Fiesta Friday.

    1. Actually, there is another variety of Japanese Sweet Potato, but here in Singapore, this type ( see photo above ) is always available here. Thank you for the kind words and yes, it is delicious. Have a great week.

  10. Definitely an interesting recipe- we'll have to try it:) I suppose the flavor of the sweet potato is string enough to go without butter, so a nice light side piece to a roast or something similar.
    Thanks for sharing on the STAR Blog Hop!
