WHEAT +SWEET POTATO DOUGHNUTS + BREAD ( 2 healthy recipes)


Another sweet potato delight, from my kitchen!

The remaining breakfast of sweet potatoes and

coconut,was triggering my brains to make

something new with it and finally rested upon

making sweet potato bread. I couldn’t separate

the coconut from the potato,so gave it a nice

mash,and added to the normal bread making

process. The bread was amazingly soft ,and the

doughnuts too.Finally ,a healthy doughnut with

a vanilla butter glaze.

This amount is for a loaf of bread and 10

doughnuts

INGREDIENTS

1-2 cups of mashed sweet potato

3-4 cups wheat flour

2 tsp yeast

2 tsp sugar

Lukewarm milk / milk +water

2-3 tblsp flax seed powder ( optional)

A pinch of salt

Olive oil / butter

METHOD

First mix the yeast, water and sugar in the

mixing bowl.

Add the mashed potato and the rest of the

ingredients , except the oil and knead to a soft

dough for 10 minutes. Add oil and knead again

for another five minutes.

Cover and set aside . Once you see the dough,

doubled in size ,turn over into a floured board

and make 3/4 of the dough into a loaf shape,

and transfer to a loaf tin . After it rises in the

tin, bake in a 200C oven for 20 – 30 minutes.

Make doughnut shapes from the remaining

dough ,and fry in oil till golden brown and

glaze.

For the vanilla butter glaze

1/4 cup powdered sugar

25 gm melted butter

Vanilla essence

a little milk

Mix all the ingredients to a smooth syrupy

texture .

Dip each doughnut and allow to cool.

Variation: I added salted caramel syrup to a

little portion of the dough and dipped in glaze .

It was melt in mouth doughnuts ,so do try this

healthy doughnut and comment !
