I seldom get to see purple sweet potato in any supermarket near my place. One fine day I spotted this little gem and immediately grabbed a few packets just in case they run out of stock again! hehehe....Its been quite some time I've made a squarish bread loaf. Therefore decided to make use some of the purple sweet potato for bread making :D Really love this pretty purple loaf! It remains soft, fluffy with slight chewy texture even the next day!
