Warm and yummy!
This bread is full of whole wheat flour AND sweet potatoes. This is extraordinary french bread.

  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • ¼ cup Water, warm
  • 1 ⅓ cups Dehydrated Sweet Potato Dices
  • 1 cup Milk, warm
  • ¼ cup Canola Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • ½ cup Cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • 3 ¾ cups Hard White Wheat Flour
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add Dehydrated Sweet Potato DIces. Boil for 10-15 minutes. Drain water.

In a small bowl stir warm water and yeast.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the Sweet Potatoes. Add Yeast mixture, Milk, Oil, Honey, Cornmeal, Salt, Thyme and 3 cups Whole Wheat Flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining Whole Wheat Flour to form a firm dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down; divide into three equal portions. Shape each into a 20-in. rope. Place three ropes on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray; braid. Pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 35 minutes to 1 hour.

Bake at 350℉ for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack.
