  • 230 g (8 oz) sweet potato -> cook
  • 15 g (0.5 oz) butter
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 200 ml (6.75 fl oz) milk
  • 450 g (16 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 7 g (0.25 oz) dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  1. Cook sweet potato until soft. Drain and blend with butter, nutmeg and milk to make a pure.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt and yeast. Add sweet potato mixture and egg and knead to make a soft dough. You can do this by hand or using a food processor. If the dough is too soft, add some more flour. If it is too stiff, add more milk.

  3. Place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover the bowl with cling film and let rise in 50 C (122 F) warm oven for about 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 16 pieces. Roll each piece and put in an oiled baking dish (I used 26 cm / 10" round pan). Cover and place in the oven for another 10-15 minutes.

  5. Brush the top of rolls with an egg wash. Bake in 200 C (392 F) oven for about 12-15 minutes or until golden. Take rolls out of the oven and cover with a kitchen cloth to keep the crust soft.
