Orange Zest Sweet Potato Bread

This bread is a mix between a
sweet roll and white bread.
It is smooth, and soft slightly
sweet with a hint of orange.
You can leave off the Cream Cheese
glaze if you want to slice it for toast.
Either way you serve it, I am sure you
will be going back for a second slice.
Orange Zest Sweet Potato Bread
2 1/4 tsp. Dry Active Yeast (I Use Red Star)
1/4 C. Sugar
Zest of 1 Orange
3/4 Cup Sweet Potatoes~ mashed
1/2 C. Warm Water
3 TBSP. Butter~ softened
1 tsp. Salt
2 Egg's
3-4 Cups All Purpose Flour
Dissolve yeast in the warm water
along with 1 TBSP. of Sugar.
Let bloom for 5 minutes.
In mixing bowl combine remaining sugar,
orange zest sweet potato, butter, salt and egg's.
Mix well. Add in the yeast mixture
and 3 Cups of flour. Mix, adding in
more flour if dough is to sticky.
Remove from mixing bowl and
knead for a few minutes until dough
is smooth. Rub a small amount of oil
over the dough, place in a bowl and cover.
Let dough rise for 1 hour. Punch down
dough, form into a loaf. Place into a
lightly greased loaf pan. Cover
with a light towel and place in a warm dry
area to raise double in size.
Bake @ 375 for 30 minutes.
Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
*If you are adding a glaze to the bread,
wait to pour it over bread  until it
is completely cooled.
