Yesterday I received a weird email. A fellow blogger from France, whom I've never corresponded with, was asking me to send a photo and more details about me since she'd like to know me better. Due to obvious security concerns my preference is not to send any photos and personal details to people I just met.
Oh yeah, I promised you some sweet potato rolls. I've been meaning to make these rolls for weeks, even ate the potatoes twice :)) . Today finally the day came. They look pretty, don't they? Since we all slept in late today I didn't start taking all the ingredients out of the fridge/pantry by 10.30. I used whole milk only, forgot to buy buttermilk. With the recipe in front on me I started my proofing the yeast, mixing milk with potatoes, measure the flour and shortly after that all the ingredients were mixing together in my stand up mixer. Suddenly I hear my husband: Get ready, we're going out for lunch. What ?!! I'm making bread !!!With oiled hands took the sticky dough from the mixer's bowl and placed it in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge to prevent it from raising before I was back home. Now, by the time we got ready, went out, enjoyed lunch in company of friends and return home my dough tripled in volume in the fridge. OMG!!Punch it down, change clothes, shape rolls and pray.
I only made half of the recipe and divided it into 12 rolls, baked at 350F for 25 minutes. To everyone surprise they turned out so good. I wish I made the entire recipe. There's always tomorrow, right? I've made before potato bread but this is the first time I'm using sweet potatoes in bread. If you love making bread and like to try different recipes, try this one. You're not going to feel sorry. It's soft, fluffy, lightly sweet and the flavor of sweet potatoes is not overwhelming.
To get the recipe you have to visit my friend Dionne's blog.

Every Monday I'm looking forward to see what new bread recipe she's talking about. Her photos make you rush in the kitchen and start baking.
Thank you Dionne !!
