Sweet Potato Apple Artisan Bread Rolls

…And how to knead Artisan Bread!

Ready to bake some delicious bread

Sweet Potato Apple Artisan Bread

Sweet Potato & Apple Artisan Bread Rolls

(Makes 16)

– 200g (8oz) sweet potato, peeled and diced

– KEEP 150ml (2/3 cup) of the sweet potato cooking water

– 60g (2oz) unsweetened Apple Sauce

– 20g (0.7oz) fresh yeast

…or 7g (1/4 oz) sachet easy-blend dried yeast

– 350g (12oz / 3 cups) unbleached white bread flour

– 115g (4oz / 1 cup) wholemeal bread flour, plus extra for sprinkling

– 2 tsp salt

– 2 tbsp (25g / 1oz) butter

– vegetable oil




So, what about the bread in the freezer bags?

Why eat bread baked yesterday, when you can have fresh baked rolls every morning without any effort? Freezing the bread rolls before their second rise means that anytime you fancy fresh bread for breakfast, you can put them into the fridge to defrost and rise overnight, then pop them straight into the oven for 13-15 minutes once you get up in the morning.

That means your house is smelling delicious and everyone gets to wake up to a hotel worthy breakfast 🙂

  1. Wow. I’ve never tried putting fruit/veg puree in bread – looks like it worked out really, really well. Definitely want to try this. Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek – I’ve pinned and tweeted this post and there’s a fresh linky going live at 6pm this evening 🙂

    • Thanks @amummytoo! It worked out so well my imaginations been going crazy with other possibilities!! The skies the limit 🙂 I will of course be back at your new linky too 🙂

  2. What a stunningly shot post as always Steph, I adore your step by step guide and you are so inspiring-I adored eating freshly baked bread in France so need to start making it more at home, nothing lovelier than a loaf in the oven (small or large)! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays

  3. I love working with yeast and this is a special recipe
    I’d definitely like to try it
    Sounds great!!
    Saving the recipe, thank you 🙂

    • Oh, a like minded yeast lover @winnish.net 🙂
      Honestly, I just love the smell of fresh yeast, the fruitiness; and watching how it slowly disintegrates in warm liquid! Hope you get around to making these little rolls, they’ve been a huge success here. Mr 1 has started complaining when his sisters take one from the plate on the table. He seems to have decided they are ALL his!

  4. I love baking bread and this one looks like a fab recipe – I can’t imagine how long it took you to do this blog post though with all those photos! Love the freezer tip, now that’s a way to wake up in the morning 🙂

    • Forgot to include it in the post, but I ALWAYS double bread recipes! …If you’re going to go to all that effort, might as well make loads …Then we have bagfuls of rolls in the freezer ready to go. Talk about an easy luxury to add to soup for dinner too – then I just take them out in the morning… Home from work, 30 minutes until everyone arrives, and into the oven they go 😉

    • Thanks @pixiedusk 🙂 This time I went all out with those photos!
      I’d really like to extinguish any anguish about baking bread… And about kneading it! If time is too precious, of course fresh bread with the help of a food processor is WAY preferable to no fresh bread at all… But it’s never going to taste as amazing as when you kneaded it yourself! #BreadNerd 🙂
