YOU Best Recipes: Braai - - Contents -

250 g cooked sweet potato, mashed 450-500 ml luke­warm wa­ter

750 g cake flour

5ml(1t)salt

1 sa­chet (10 g) in­stant yeast

15 ml (1 T) but­ter, melted

Grease two medium-size flat ca­st­iron pots with lids 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 yeast in a large bowl. Make a well in the mid­dle and pour in the 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 but­ter and cover with the 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).

See the box above on how to bake bread on the coals.
