    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    Delicious fluffy yet heavy sweet potato rolls. The whole wheat flour and oat bran add extra fibre without being obvious because of the peach/orangey color of these buns. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or snack. In North America, sweet potatoes are often called yams. Yams -a tuberous starchy vegetable that is a staple in Africa. Recipe from Peak of the Market.

      love this bread, made it 2x now.I omit the raisins, use 1/2t salt (because it was a bit bland at 1/8t) use all whole wheat flour, 2T for both oil and honey. And the bread is still fluffy and soft

      These are really soft rolls! 2T of orange zest ended up being one whole navel orange, and the rolls smelled (and tasted) of orange, not sweet potato! :) Since I baked up a bunch of sweet potatoes (to use in other things, as well), I didn't have any cooking liquid, but I also think the starch usually lost in the water was kept in the sweet potatoes by baking. I simply added 1 c. water instead of the cooking water. They are very good tasting, only slightly sweet, and will make excellent little sandwiches with leftover brisket tomorrow, I think! :) Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
