Bread Baking: Sweet Potato Buns

There's no story for this recipe. I needed buns, I made these. They were yummy. And there you go.

They aren't as orange or as sweet-potato-y as other bread I've made with this same flour, but it still adds a subtle flavor and a pretty color without hitting you over the head that they're different. The flavor is, for lack of a better term, buttery.

I used whey for these buns but water is just fine. As for the sweet potato flour, it might be hard to find but it's an interesting ingredient. If you can't find it, just add the same amount of bread flour.
