Using orange sweet potatoes this time

Yield: 20 rolls or shape as desired

1/4 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
1 Tbsp yeast
1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1 cup buttermilk, warmed to 110 degrees – make your own by adding 1 tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice and top up with milk to make 1 cup
1/4 cup (56g) butter, softened
1 egg, at room temperature
1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar – or according to your preference
1 1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup mashed purple sweet potato – Roast the potato, peel and mash
4  cups (450g) bread flour + more if dough is still too sticky, depending on your potato puree
1 Tbsp butter, melted


Really love the colour and softness of these rolls!

In the bowl of an electric mixer,  mix all ingredients except butter to form a rough dough.
Add butter and continue to knead until dough is smooth and pulls away from sides of bowl.The bottom may stick to the bottom but that’s alright.
Gather into a ball and place in a lightly floured bowl and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size; about an hour.
Punch dough down and divide the dough to fit your pan. Roll pieces into balls and place in greased baking dish (I do 3 rows of 3) and remaining dough divided into 3 large buns.
Let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200C degrees. Bake rolls 17 – 20 minutes until golden.
Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.


Cottony soft!
