Sweet Potato Strusel Bread


Made this yummy Sweet Potato Bread for home-bakers-challenge this month. This is a rich and moist bread not the fluffy and soft kind which we are used to. But sweet potato lends this bread a very unique flavour along with the nutty strusel.

The bread can be had plain as it is sweetish in taste. We thoroughly enjoyed this bread with some custard sauce .








Ingredients :

1/4 kg ..................sweet potato
2 tsp......................butter
1/3 cup.................chopped nuts ( almonds, pistachios, walnuts )
2 tbsp..................sugar
1 cup...................maida
1 cup..................wheat flour
3/4 cup................sugar (powdered)
1 tsp....................baking powder
3 tbsp..................oil
2/3 cup ...............fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp................cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp................nutmeg powder
2 tbsp.................egg replacer powder ( whipped stiff in 1/4 cup water )








Method :


Steam the sweet potato, peel it and mash it
.
In a small vessel add butter , nuts and sugar and heat till the sugar melts.

Keep this mixture aside.

In a vessel add all the ingredients given in the list from maida onwards and mix well.

If needed add some water for mixing well.

The mixture should be thicker than the idli batter.

Pour the mixture in a greased pan.

Put spoonfuls of the nuts mixture on the cake batter at intervals.

Bake for  40 to 50  minutes at 180 degrees in a preheated oven.

Check whether cooked by inserting a toothpick in the bread.

The toothpick should come out completely clean.
