Purple Sweet Potato Filling:

  • 100 g purple sweet potato cooked & mashed, warm
  • 10 g granulated sugar
  • 5 ml avocado oil or light vegetable oil


  • 107 ml non-dairy milk
  • 15 g granulated sugar
  • 3 g active dry yeast
  • 135 g all-purpose flour
  • 15 ml avocado oil


Make the purple sweet potato filling:

  • In a bowl, combine the warm mashed purple sweet potato with granulated sugar and avocado oil and mix to incorporate. Set aside.

Make the dough:

  • In a small bowl, combine the warmed non-dairy milk with sugar and add in the yeast. Give it a stir and let it become foamy, about a few minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, add in the flour, avocado oil, and the activated yeast mixture.
  • Knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Lightly grease and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let it rise in a warm location, until doubled in size.
  • Once the dough has risen, deflate and divide the dough into 6 equal balls.
  • Roll the dough into a 5" x 4" length rectangle.
  • With a knife of spatula, evenly smear the sweet potato filling over the entire surface of the dough.
  • With a sharp knife (or dough scraper), make vertical slits along the bottom of the dough appx 2" in length. (Don't cut the entire dough).
  • Then roll the dough from the uncut side down towards the slit end.
  • Carefully coil and seal the two ends together and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat with the remainder.
  • Cover the buns loosely with a tea towel and let it rise until slightly puffy.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C.
  • Bake the buns at 350°F/177°C for 13-15 minutes, until buns are lightly golden.
  • Let cool and enjoy the buns freshly made.
