If you were wondering “What can be made from sweet potato flour?”, well this gluten-free bread loaf is a good answer to your question.
Differently from the traditional American sweet potato bread, this dough is not made with sweet potatoes, but with its flour.
Is sweet potato flour gluten-free?
Sweet potato flour is a gluten-free flour made from dried, finely ground sweet potatoes. Sweet potato flour may be used in baking, to increase nutritional value of various foods, and as a binding agent. Rich in fibers and low in saturated fats, this gluten-free alternative to wheat flour gives the dough a nice softness. With sweet potato flour you will avoid washing, peeling, cutting and mashing sweet potatoes. You can use it right away, because sweet potato flour is ready to use.
What is the trick to making good gluten-free bread?
During my years of experience in gluten-free baking, I understood that mixing different types of flour is the key for success. In this recipe we use white rice, buckwheat, tapioca and sweet potato flours. No gums or additives are necessary. Psyllium husks is essential and cannot be replaced.
