Sweet Potato Swirl Bread

This swirl bread is light, fluffy, and not to mention mesmerizing!


  • 250 grams bread flour
  • 4 grams instant or quick-rise yeast
  • 25 grams sugar
  • 4 grams sea salt
  • 165 grams soy milk lukewarm; or use coconut milk
  • 25 grams dairy-free butter
  • 20 grams purple sweet potato powder for color; can be replaced with matcha, cocoa, or other powders with color


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and milk. Knead until smooth; about 10 minutes by hand, then add in the butter and continue kneading into a smooth dough.
  2. Form the dough into a ball and place in a covered bowl to rise for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in volume.
  3. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into 2 equal parts.
  4. To one piece, knead in the sweet potato powder (1 tsp at a time) until the color is evenly distributed.
  5. Let the dough rest again for 15 minutes, then roll each piece into a 0.5cm-thick rectangle.
  6. Lay the purple dough on top of the plain dough, then roll them together into a tight log. Place into a greased loaf tin to rise for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350F / 180C.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing & enjoy!
