I adore this recipe, the sweet aroma when baking was indescribable. Showing both the plain and wholemeal ones here and they are both delish. I hope it’s healthy too. I used these sweet potatoes and I think they really lent beautiful colour, moisture and depth in taste to the buns.

I replaced the orange with purple sweet potato in equal amount and made into burger buns. The recipe worked perfectly. It gave a lovely purple Colour with a soft pillowy texture.

    I love this! I never thought of using sweet potatoes instead of potatoes for bread, but I LOVE the idea. I’m not much of a baker though. I’m scared I’d screw up these beautiful rolls!

      Try, starchy root vegetables help to retain moisture and softness. Maybe start with the plain version.
