It must taste good when it is out from the oven! I love hot to warm buns and Im sure using sweet potato makes the buns soft.

Hi, I have done this bread recipe for 2 times. But seems tat the bread rise very slow. Can u advise? Thanks.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

anonymous, it is either your yeast not active or weather is not warm enough to rise the bread.

Hi, how long to knead in a standing mixer? My buns were well risen but kind of dry and little bit tough. Thanks Janice

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Janice, about 20mins, add a bit extra milk next time if the dough is dry as it depend on the moisture of mashed sweet potato.

Hi Sonia, I don't have condense milk with me, can I ignore this? Or is there any other ingredients to replace it? Please advise, thanks

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Sachi, you may omit the condensed milk, but you have to increase sugar and milk amount.

Hi Sonia,

if potato is omitted, do the other ingredients remain at the same amount?

Varn Teing said...

Hi Sonia,
I'm new to baking and cooking and I love your blog!
I'd like to ask if it's possible to keep the dough in the fridge overnight and bake it in the oven the next day? Thnx

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Varn Teing, i have yet to try this method but I think it should work ok, you have to wait the dough return to room temp and rise again before bake it.

Varn Teing said...

Hi Sonia, I made these buns today and they turned out really well! Everyone loves them! Thnx for the wonderful recipe
