An easy, tasty, nutritious recipe I created to serve at breakfast and help use up the 300 pounds of sweet potatoes my son grows every year.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add sweet potato, cover, and steam until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Strain into a bowl and mash until smooth.
Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a fork until mixture is crumbly. Stir in sugar, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Add 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes; mix until dough comes together.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface; divide in half. Pat each half into a circle the size of a large dinner plate. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to two 10x15-inch baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which not always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
