Peel and boil the sweet potatoes and mash, let them cool.

Add the flour, salt, yeast and the warm water.

Gradually knead very well (the more you knead the better it gets). 

Add more warm water if necessary (the dough should be slightly wetter than bread dough). 

Let it rise in a warm place covered with a cloth, until it duplicates in volume.

Add chopped walnuts.

Divide the dough into 2 pieces, make the breads and let rise for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Bake in preheated oven at 220 Celcius for about 30 to 35 minutes.
