Sweet potato pot bread
250 g cooked sweet potato, mashed 450-500 ml lukewarm water
750 g cake flour
5 ml (1 t) salt
1 sachet (10 g) instant yeast
15 ml (1 T) butter, melted
Grease two medium-size flat cast-iron pots well with butter and dust with flour.
1 Mix the cooked sweet potato with enough water to create a runny consistency.
2 Mix the flour, salt and instant yeast in a large bowl.
MAKES 2 LOAVES
Make a well in the middle and pour in the sweet potato mixture.
3 Mix until a dough begins to form. Knead until smooth and elastic, at least 10 minutes. Divide into two equal parts and put each in a separate pot. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
4 Brush the tops of the breads with the melted butter and cover the pots with lids.
5 Put the pots on low coals. Pack a few coals on the lids and bake for about 40 minutes (knock on the bases of the loaves when done and they should sound hollow).
