sweet! potato bread
Every time I make bread recently, I vow to never try anything but no-knead bread ever again. But I keep seeing recipes and loaves that I think I can make myself. Not that I've failed miserably, I just wait and wait for it to rise and it never does, or I get half way through the recipe and then realize I don't have the right kind of flour. I wanted to make sourdough bread (my main reason for eating at Cracker Barrel), but discovered it takes days and days. Maybe my problem is that I can't just make a simple loaf of white or wheat.
Anyway, something finally went right. I turned to the bread machine for help. This sweet potato bread (basically white bread + sweet potato and brown sugar) turned out pretty good. Although the machine makes this super tall loaf.
Next up: chocolate no-knead bread.
