Summary

Yield
large rolls
Prep time4 hours
Cooking time25 minutes
Total time4 hours, 25 minutes

Ingredients

1  
sweet potato (baked)
1 c
milk
1⁄2 c
Sugar (white or brown or a mix)
3 c
all-purpose unbleached flour (or bread flour)
2 t
instant yeast
2 t
salt
1⁄2 t
cinnamon (ground)
1⁄8 t
nutmeg (ground)

Instructions

Bake the sweet potato for approximately 45 minutes at 375. Remove the oven and let cool.

Combine the sweet potato, sugar, and milk and stir to make a paste. Mix in 2 cups of the flour, the salt, the yeast, and the spices until thoroughly combined. Add more flour a quarter cup at a time. Mix in after each addition until you have a dough that is tacky but which you can handle with wet hands. When you hit the proper consistency, remove from the bowl and knead by hand for 5 to 10 minutes.

Set the dough aside to rise in a covered bowl for 45 minutes to an hour. Divide into a dozen or so pieces, shape, and then again allow to rise until they have roughly doubled in size, another hour or so.

Bake at 375 for approximately 20 to 25 minutes until they are beginning to turn brown.
