Sweet Potato Pan Rolls Recipe

This tender rolls are one of my brothers favorites so I make them often. Spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, they are great along side a wide variety of dishes from chicken to a bowl of steaming chili.—Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups bread flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sweet potato, butter, honey, oil, egg, salt, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1 cup flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place in two greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes or until doubled.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 rolls.
