How to make it

  • In a small saucepan, scaled milk. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 cup butter, and salt. Stir until butter melts. Mix in sweet potatoes and cool to lukewarm.
  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add milk mixture and 4 cups flour. Beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes or until smooth. Stir in raisins.
  • Gradually add remaining 3 1/2 cups flour, mixing until a stiff dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning dough in bowl to grease top. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
  • Punch down dough and turn out onto a lightly floured board.
  • Divide into two equal portions and roll each into a 16x8-inch rectangle.
  • Spread 2 tablespoons softened butter over each rectangle
  • . Stir together remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over each rectangle.
  • Starting from the narrow side, roll up each rectangle and pinch edges and ends together. Tuck ends under slightly and place, seam-side down, in greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Brush tops with melted butter.
  • Cover and let rise for 1 hour, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped.
  • Remove bread immediately from pans and cool on a wire rack. Makes 2 loaves, 16 slices per loaf.
