Flowery Sweet Potato Yoghurt Bread

8 Sept 2014

Today is Mid Autumn Festival but I'm not making moon cakes because no one in my house eat moon cakes except ME. 

After I made the Lazy Doggie Sweet Potato Loaf I have 1 more organic sweet potato sitting in my fridge. So I used it to make the yoghurt bread with sweet potato filling today. 

My boy didn't like sweet potato, so I knew I cannot do it the usual way to fill the sweet potato filling inside the bun. I made it with the cinnamon rolls method. Rolled out the dough, spread the sweet potato filling and rolled up. Made his favorite flowery pattern. He likes this bread a lot and he said he likes sweet potato with bread. Yay! Successful! 

And, I personally like this bread, very fluffy and soft. Next, I'll try this with purple sweet potato, if I can find one :)

280g Bread Flour
35g Sugar
1tsp Instant Yeast
2g Salt 

55g Plain Yoghurt
25g Honey
38g Egg (lightly beaten, some extra for egg wash)
125ml Milk

28g Butter 

(C) Sweet Potato Filling:
130g Sweet Potato (mashed and sieved)
20g Castor Sugar
9g Butter

Sesame seeds (optional)

1. In a mixer bowl, mix (A) ingredients. Make a well, add in (B) except butter. 
2. Mix all ingredients. When all ingredients come together, knead in butter. Continue kneading until the dough passes the membrane test.

The dough is 'elastic' at this stage
3. Cover with cling wrap and let it proof doubled in size. About an hour.
4. Mean while, make the sweet potato filling. Mix all (C) ingredients while the mashed sweet potato still warm. Cover with cling wrap and set aside. Do not keep in the fridge.

5. Deflate and divide dough to make 5 balls, about 100g each. Let it rest for 15 minutes. Shape as desired. Sprinkle some water and let it proof about 1 hour. Egg wash and sprinkle with some sesame seeds.

When my boy saw this, he said they looks like sweet potato Man Tou. :)

5. Bake in a preheated oven 170'C for 15 minutes. 

This bread is so soft and fluffy, my hubby ate it (one spiral bun) with just one bite!
