Halloween Sweet Potato Bread
A Tartine 100% Whole Wheat Bread or Integrale with some sweet potatoes for a Halloween colour treat.
|The Sweet potatoes are roasted in the oven in foil for 90 minutes at 400 degrees F|
|267g of one sweet potato are mixed with the water for hydration|
|I started with 70+5% hydration, but I ended up adding more because the dough required it.|
|Half of the yam is broken up in the water|
|mixed with dough, you get flecks of orange|
|I added the other half of the sweet potato too, but left it in rough chunks|
|Chunks are added after the salt and another turn.|
|Squooshed in and then turned|
|One of the loaves had some paprika in the rice flour that lined the banneton -- to end up in the crust|
|The 2 Sweet Potato Loaves in the forefront; some everyday Integrale loaves behind it.|
This bread is 80% hydrated, but some of that hydration comes from the sweet potato itself. Then chunks of sweet potato are added for extra colour and sweet flavour.
It is a bit strange, but this bread actually tastes quite good, toasted with blue cheese.
