275gstrong white flour[2 1/2 cups]
350gsweet potato[2 medium-size]
7gquick yeast[1 sachet / teaspoon]
80 - 100mlwarm waterdepending on moisture content of sweet potatoes
2tablespoonscoconut oilmelt first, if hardened, then take 2 tablespoons of the liquid oil. Vegetable oil should also be fine
Place sweet potatoes with the skin on a deep pan. Fill with water until 3/4 the level of the sweet potatoes. Boil for 15 -20 minutes or until soft. Prick with a fork to test.
Peel and discard the skin. Mash the sweet potato to a fine puree. Use while still warm; it actually helps the dough to rise.
Add yeast, salt and sugar to flour. Mix well.
Add sweet potato to the flour. Mix and knead to combine.
Add the warm water. Mix and knead.
Add coconut oil and knead. The dough should come together better by now and should be less sticky.
Then, transfer onto a floured board and knead for 8 - 10 minutes. You may want to add a little more flour if too sticky or 1 - 2 tablespoons more water if too dry. (This also depends on the moisture content of the sweet potatoes.)
Oil a large bowl and place in the dough. Cover with cling film and leave to rise for 1 and a half hours in a warm place.
The dough should double in size.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius / 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Divide dough into 3 equal parts. Take one part and roll into a log. How long or thick you roll it will depend on the size or length of bread you want. Repeat with the other 2 pieces.
Join the 3 pieces at the top and start braiding. Press to secure them at the end, then reshape to nice rounded smooth ends.
Place on greaseproof or parchment paper on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (rotate the pan 180 degrees halfway through, for even baking).
When bread is baked through, it will make a hollow sound when tapped on the top, otherwise it will sound a little 'compact'.
Remove from oven and allow to cool a little before slicing.
