Sweet Potato Loaf (& Donuts)


 
Okay, after all those Korean food posts, let's move on LOL
This time I'm sharing one of the bread I recently made. I had some sweet potatoes, those with orange flesh so I decided to use some for this bread
I made half of the dough into donuts and the rest I shaped into loaf
Nice and sweet taste and aroma, soft and fluffy with slight chewiness, and little bits of sweet potatoes here and there
 
 
 
 
Recipe is from My Mind Patch
(she used purple sweet potato)
 
What you need:
 
115g fresh milk (you may add up to additional of 25g depending on the water content of the sweet potato)
25g beaten egg
30g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
20g coconut oil
100g mashed steamed sweet potato
225g bread flour
3/4 tsp instant yeast
some beaten egg
 
Method:
  1. Using bread maker to knead the dough: Pour in the wet ingredients first into the pan: milk, egg, sweet potato and oil. Followed by the dry ingredients: sugar, salt, flour and lastly yeast (make sure salt and yeast are separated). Press 'dough' function and let the machine start the kneading. After 5mins, check whether the dough is too dry. If it is, add more milk up to 25g)
  2. Let the machine does continue its work (about 1hour 30mins with the first proofing)
  3. After its done, remove the dough from the pan and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Flatten it to release some trapped air bubble
  4. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Roll up each dough and pull down the sides a few times to stretch it out and seal at the bottom
  5. Place them in a covered container and let it rest for 10mins
  6. Roll out each dough using rolling pin, flip it over so the smoother side will face outside after rolling up
  7. You may place small bits of sweet potatoes if you have (optional, I skipped)
  8. Roll up the dough from one of the shorter end, pinch to seal
  9. Place the dough into pan of your choice (I used loaf pan), spray some water and cover with damp cloth, let it proof til doubled in size (about 1hour in a warm oven/microwave)
  10. Preheat oven to 180degC 15mins before proofing time ends. Brush the top of the dough with beaten egg and bake for about 25 to 30mins (when you knock the top there's a hollow sound and it's nicely browned)
  11. Remove from oven and brush the top with melted butter, transfer to a cooling rack and let cool before you cut it into slices
  12. Keep in an airtight container
 
 

 
 
I used about a third of the dough to make donuts, it turned out well, too
  1. Flatten the dough using a rolling pin. Use donut cutter to shape
  2. Prepare a wok with some cooking oil and preheat. Once oil is hot, reduce the fire to low. Wait for about a minute and start frying the donut, not too many at one time, til browned on both sides
  3. Remove from heat and put them on a strainer
  4. When it's slightly cooled, transfer to a cooling rack and let it cool completely
  5. Decorate as you prefer. I used Nutella to 'glue' the chocolate sprinkles
 

Obviously, the kids prefers the donuts LOL
