Bread is one of the easiest foods with which to play, once you get a good basic recipe you can hide all kinds of healthy stuff in it. A week ago I was bless with several sweet potatoes, one could more accurately say "an abundance". Now, one member of my household will not eat sweet potatoes, won't touch them with the proverbial "ten foot pole", if he doesn't know they are in the grocery bag then he will carry them in (slight exaggeration, he would carry them in regardless). So what else is there to do but hide these nutritionally dense tubers in a rich bread dough. I also replaced the white sugar with maple syrup which only enhanced the flavor and gentle orange color.
1 cup warm water
1 envelope dry yeast (1 packet)
1/4 cup maple syrup (only the real stuff)
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, melted then cooled
1 large egg
2/3 to 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato
3/4 cup oatmeal, quick or old fashioned
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups (more or less) flour (all purpose or white spelt)
In a large mixer bowl, combine water, yeast and a teaspoon of the maple syrup. Let rest for 10 minutes, it will be foamy.
This is good as toast, sandwiches, or with soup, it sliced well and had a wonderful aroma. If it lasts long enough it would make great French toast!
