Purple Sweet Potato buns 奶香紫薯面包



For the past few days, i was busy making few type of breads for breakfast. I was so happy able to make the sandwich roll that taste quite close to Subway sandwich roll. But I did not manage to take any photo as that time i was busy with something else. I will definitely make this again and will share with you the recipe soon. Come back today's recipe, it is the bread bun made by purple sweet potato, love the sweet purple colour and the soft texture..remain me of a very nice sweet potato bread that i tried in Das Gute Hong Kong....

The dough is very sticky, maybe due to the high water content in sweet potato, need to dust a lof of flour when shaping..you need to also adjust water amount if you want to make this..
