Secrets Away

Sweet Potato Bread


Welcome to September’s Secret Recipe Club recipe!  This month I was assigned Heather’s blog: Sweet and Savory Tooth.  Heather’s blog has an insane amount of recipes ranging from sweet to savory to guilt-inducing to healthy.  I debated the almond sticky buns for a very, very, very long time.  Then I remembered that I’m suppose to be watching what I eat and that there was no way I could possibly justify making these insanely good look but oh-so-decadent goodies.   For the same reason I tried to ignore the twenty-five (25!) cookie recipes on her blog, though I did linger on her Zucchini Cranberry Chocolate Chip cookies since I could somewhat justify the zucchini as being healthy.  In the end I decided to make her Sweet Potato Braid Bread and talk about a winner!  Not only did it make my entire house smell like fall, it tasted phenomenal.  I did make a few modifications in order to be able to use my bread machine, making it even easier to have such an amazing bread.

Sweet Potato Bread


2 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups bread flour

2 tbsp dry milk powder

2 tsp salt

1 tsp dried thyme

1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato

3 tbsp honey

3/4 cup water

2 tbsp olive oil (can also use canola oil)

2 tsp yeast


  1. Add ingredients to bread machine per instructions.

I have a feeling this will bread will be regular in our house, it goes with everything and the ingredients are ones I almost always have on hand.  Be sure to check out the rest of the recipes submitted for this month’s SRC!

  1. Guess who had you this month…it was ME!!! Had so much fun reading through your blog and choosing a recipe. Found out too that I stink at song lyrics. Check out which of your recipes I made, hope I did it justice.


    1. This bread was perfect for sandwiches! At some point I want to try the carrot bread in my bread book but I’m a little worried about it tasting too strong…

    1. I’m a huge fan of sweet potatoes and I’m slowly bringing my husband over to the spud side. Let me know what you end up with gluten-free wise, would love to see that recipe!
