Sweet Potato Bread #BreadBakers

Sweet Potato bread
Sweet Potato Bread lifts fall breads to another level! Moist, airy and light for sandwiches or toasting.
I love this bread toasted with a slab of honey butter melted on top! Apricot jam is special on this toast too. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Bread

Yield: 12 slices

Serving Size: 1 slice


  • 1 medium cooked sweet potato, mashed (about 1 cup when mashed)
  • 1/4 cup warm water 110 to 120 degrees
  • 1/2 cup warm milk 110 to 120 degrees
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 packet dry yeast (I used Red Star)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups flour


  • Mix together flour, sugar, salt, yeast and 1 3/4 cups flour.
  • Bring water, milk and butter to a temperature of 110 to 120 (Red Star yeast users 120 to 130) add to sweet potato and blend.
  • Stir wet mixture into dry mixture. Add 1 1/2 cups flour.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured board. Knead into a smooth ball (6 to 8 minutes.)
  • Place dough ball into a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover and set in a warm place to double in size.
  • Punch down risen dough and shape in loaf. Place in greased 5x9 loaf pan, cover and let rise again.
  • Bake at 375 for approximately 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove baked bread from pan and allow to completely cool on a rack before slicing.

Food for Thought…Have you ever tried sweet potato in baked goods like muffins, cake or pie? Sweet Potato Pie is one of my favorites. I feel it’s better than pumpkin!
