Recipe Note: This recipe was developed by Paul Stevens, our Chef at Coho. We present two breads daily in our bread basket. This sweet potato bread has become a real favorite with our guests. Sometimes we add currents or swap out the rye flour with whole wheat. We brush it with an egg wash or heavy cream and sprinkle some caraway seeds or sesame seeds before putting it in the oven.
