Roasted Sweet Potato Beer Bread

29 Sep

Roasted Sweet Potato Beer Bread


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 Tb Olive Oil
  • 1 large full sprig of fresh Rosemary, minced
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tb plus 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 bottle or can of beer (I use Coors or Budweiser)
  • 3 Tb salted butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 375, line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with a pan spray.

Toss the cubed sweet potato with the Olive Oil and spread them on the foil lined baking sheet. Roast them for 40 minutes until completely soft. Tossing them halfway during the roasting process.

Turn you oven down to a temperature of 350 and butter a loaf or bread pan.

In a large bowl mash the roasted sweet potatoes. Add the minced Rosemary. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt over the sweet potatoes. Add the brown sugar and toss all the ingredient together. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the beer. Stir the ingredients until they are well blended. Spread the bread dough into the buttered loaf pan and pour the melted butter over the top. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. You’ll know the bread is baked thoroughly when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

    I love the idea of this. The confetti of sweet potato give is a delicious and charming look. I think I’m going to try to convert this to allergy-free and plant-based. Thanks for the insiration.
