Sweet Potato Loaf

Hey, look at this, my very 1st rectangle shape load, hurray!

Had 1 big sweet potato left in the pantry, decided to bake a loaf with it.  I adapted Carol's honey and pumpkin loaf, but changed the pumpkin to sweet potato.

150g sweet potato, steamed and mashed
280g bread flour (used 200g bread flour and 100g superfine flour)
1 egg
3/4 tsp instant yeast
1/8 tsp salt
20g honey (used 2 tbsp)
30g milk (used 1 tbsp milk powder and about 50ml cold water)
30g unsalted butter

  1. Except butter, mix all ingredients into the mixing bowl, knead for 7-8 minutes
  2. Put in butter, knead for about 15 minutes or until dough turn soft and not sticky
  3. Place dough into an oiled container, let leaven for 60 minutes or raise til doubling its size
  4. When dough has doubled its size, punch out the air from the dough, shape it round, cover it with a wet towel and let rest for another 20 minutes
  5. Separate dough into 2, roll and place into loaf tin
  6. Spray some water on the dough and let it have 2nd leaven for about 50-60 minutes or til the dough filling 80% of the loaf tin
  7. Cover the loaf tin, preheat the oven to 200C
  8. Bake for 40 minutes
  9. Remove loaf from loaf tin and let cool on rack
Aw... just look at the fluffy texture

I still haven't eat the the bread, thus can't comment on the taste, I'm sure it taste just as good as its look :)  I'm so happy today with the result of this loaf.
