It’s time for Bread Bakers and I’m hosting it this month. We are baking bread with fall fruits and vegetables. So anything baked with apples, grapes, pears, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, acorn squash, butternut squash etc. are all welcome. I made this Harvest bread with sweet potato.

Sweet Potato Bread

This is a very flavorful bread made with mashed sweet potato which gives it a nice golden color and light texture. The starch from the sweet potato keeps the bread fresh longer. Original recipe used roasted and mashed sweet potato, but I microwaved a peeled one and mashed it until smooth — a much quicker and easier alternate.

Sweet Potato Bread

Recipe is from King Arthur Flour. The addition of warm spices makes it perfect for this time of the year. Bread turned out moist, soft and delicious. I added raisins but skipped the nuts. It is perfect to eat just as is or as a toast with some homemade plum jam. I made grilled cheese sandwich with it and loved the sweet, savory and cheesy taste of this bread.

Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix and knead to form a smooth, supple dough.
  2. Transfer the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover and set aside for 60~90 minutes or until the dough is well risen and puffy.
  3. Shape the dough into to a log and place it in a lightly greased 9"x5" loaf pan. Cover with a greased plastic wrap and allow to rise for 60 minutes until crowned 1" over the rim of the pan.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Bake the bread for 35~45 minutes or until a digital thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf registers 190°F. Remove the bread from the oven, turn it out on to a wire rack and cool completely before slicing.
