Ingredients

  • 1 (1/4-ounce) envelope active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°)

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Preparation

  1. Combine yeast and 1/4 cup warm water in a glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Stir together sweet potatoes and butter, blending well. Stir in sugar and salt; add yeast mixture, stirring until smooth.
  3. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually stir into potato mixture, until well blended. Lightly knead until dough holds together.
