1 3/4 cups warm water
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes (without added milk or butter) I cook mine in the Microwave for about 4 minutes
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups whole wheat flour
3 1/4 – 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (Plain)
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 – 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover with cling wrap and let rise in a warm area until doubled will take about an hour
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into either two loaves. Place in two greased loaf pans or for a more rustic look like I have done in the photo I just make one huge circular loaf without using a pan Cover; let rise until doubled, about 25 minutes. Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown (cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly). Remove from pans to wire racks.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter; brush over warm bread. This is very important to make the crust taste extra yummy....Cool.
1 cup butter, softened or low fat spread
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened or low fat cream cheese
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted
In a small mixing bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Stir in walnuts. Serve with bread.
If you don't like nuts then just leave them out
Hope you have a go at this bread
Even if you have never made bread before I can guarantee that this one will work
It will soon become your favorite recipe
You will make it over and over again
You can also make it in to little Dinner bread rolls
Pop them in to a zip lock freezer bag (open freeze first) and just take one out for breakfast , lunch or dinner
If you choose to make the loaves, I like to slice them and wrap in cling wrap and freeze so that I always serve up fresh bread
