Sweet Potato Bread

I was inspired by an entry by Debbie Cook of Stitches and Seams, and so, after serving sweet potatoes with turkey breast one night earlier this week, I decided to make sweet potato bread with the leftovers. It was a fine snack or breakfast bread, and would have been good with poultry or pork. My fussy daughter liked it until she learned that it had sweet potatoes in it - curse those teenagers! Darn good thing she's a delightful girl!


3/4 cup warm water
2 tsp yeast
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. gluten
1 apple, grated (I used red delicious, Debbie used Macintosh and said her recipe called for a tart green apple)

Add all ingredients to the bread machine, and set to mix only, or mix by hand for about 10 minutes. Let rise, then punch down and transfer into a greased and floured bread pan for a second rise. When the dough has doubled in size, bake at 375 for about 30 minutes. It's a pretty bread!

Yours turned out beautifully! I'm so glad you commented on my blog because now I've found yours. Lots of good cooking ideas here. Yumm! And I have a red-headed teenage son too!

You are a dangerous, dangerous woman. I'm so behind on my SWAP projects, and now I want to make Sweet Potato Bread.
