Sweet potato clover rolls go great with any fall meal. They are light and fluffy and slightly sweetened with sweet potatoes and a little brown sugar. The addition of sweet potato puree to these rolls keeps them moist and gives them a beautiful orange hue.

A little orange zest gives sweet potato clover rolls a light citrus flavor.

These are yeast rolls and require a little time and effort, but they are not difficult to make.

Tips for making sweet potato clover rolls

  • Make sure the milk is not too hot when you add it to the yeast or it will kill it. (105 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit is good. Use a thermometer to check)
  • I use sweet potato puree without anything added. I bake the sweet potato in a 400 degree oven until smooth. Let it cool for a few minutes. The skin will peel off easily. Then mash the pulp very well with a fork.
  • Let the dough rise in a warm place. On top of the dryer while it works it works fine. Or if you have one of those portable electric heaters, it won't take long to heat a small room, like the laundry room, with the door closed.

Sweet potato clover rolls go great with any fall meal. They are light and fluffy and slightly sweetened with sweet potatoes and a little brown sugar.

  • 2 (1/4 ounces) sachets active dry yeast
  • 1 cup of warm milk (100 to 110 degrees)
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
  • 4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato, about 1 medium
  • 1/3 cup very compact brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • Mix the yeast, milk and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Let stand 5 minutes.

  • Add 2 cups of flour and with dough hook, beat on LOW speed until combined.

  • Add the sweet potato puree, brown sugar, butter, orange zest, salt, and egg. Whisk on medium-low speed, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until well mixed.

  • With mixer on LOW, gradually add 2 more cups of flour. The mixture should form a dough and separate from the sides of the bowl.

  • Place the dough in a large greased bowl, rotating it to cover the top. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in a warm place to rise until it doubles in size, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  • Knock the dough down and place it on a lightly floured surface. Knead 8 to 10 times, sprinkling the additional 1/2 cup flour over the dough, little by little, if it is too sticky.

  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 balls in each cup of 2 greased muffin tins.

  • Cover with a kitchen towel and let it grow in a warm place for 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Brush with melted butter.
