Fall is when my kitchen is stocked with sweet potatoes and all sort of squashes, and I have a very delicious sweet potato bread recipe for you today. If you have some sweet potato at home, you must give this brown butter honey sweet potato bread a try. Forgive the literal name of this bread, it is quite a mouthful I admit, but I guarantee you and everyone you serve will enjoy every single bite of this bread.
Mashed/pureed sweet potato
Start by making a batch of mashed/pureed sweet potato. For this recipe, even one sweet potato should yield more than enough puree for one batch of this recipe.
After making this bread for a while, I think my average is 1 sweet potato = 2 batches of this bread.
If you are making this for a family/friend gathering, you may very well need to prepare two batches anyway since everyone will want a second serving! If you want a shortcut, you can also use canned sweet potato puree. 😀
Plain vs. sweet red bean paste filling
Maybe because I am Asian, I am very fond of sweet red bean paste. I have this crazy unexplainable tick to always stock my fridge with some red bean paste.
If sweet red bean paste is not your favorite food, feel free to omit. This bread is still super lovely and super yummy even when plain!
If you are like me, then you can either make ahead some sweet red bean paste, or just buy some koshi-an.
The last key ingredient for this bread is the brown butter.
No you cannot buy brown butter in the grocery. You need to make this at home, and it is a very simple process.
Basically you heat some unsalted butter in a small sauce pot on medium (or low-medium) heat until it turns into golden toffee brown color.
This extremely easy step transforms regular butter into brown butter, which tastes amazing compared to regular butter.
Of course, using brown butter will make your bread extra special, perfect for all those special occasions where you will want to serve this bread.
