  Categories: Breads, Potatoes
       Yield: 1 Loaf
  
       2    Env active dry yeast; 1/4 oz
            -each
     1/2 c  Warm water; about 110~
     1/4 c  Sugar
       1 pn Salt
       1 pn Fresh ground pepper
       3 tb Butter; melt
       2    Eggs; beaten

   Preheat the oven to 350~. Lightly grease a mixing bowl and baking sheet. In
   a mixing bowl, whisk the yeast and water together, until the yeast
   dissolves. Add in the sugar, salt, pepper, and butter. Mix well and let
   rest for 15 minutes. Stir in the eggs and sweet potatoes. Mix the flour and
   raisins together. Fold in the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, working with your
   hands until all the flour is incorporated. Form the dough into a small ball
   and sprinkle the dough with the remaining tablespoon of flour. Place the
   dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning the dough once to cover with the
   oil. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let rise until doubled in size,
   about 1 1/2 hours. Punch the dough down and roll into an oval loaf about
   8x3". Place the loaf in the center of the prepared baking sheet. Cover and
   let rise until double in size, about 45 minutes. Bake the bread for about
   40 minutes, or until golden. Remove the bread from the oven and transfer to
   a wire baking sheet and let cool. Slice the bread and serve with butter.
