Baking with Sweet potatos

Surprisingly, the sweet potato didn't gave as much sweetness as i expected. But it actually helped tenderize the dough and really keeps it moist. The bread came out soft and nice (without added fat), and didn't go dry even in the fridge after more than a day.

Perhaps later on, i might experiment with yam, avocados, zuchinni, carrots & ...parsnips?? :P

I've made sweet potato biscuits, but never tried putting them in a yeasted bread (though I did try a pumpkin french bread back in the fall). That sounds like something I'll have to try some time.
