First cook the sweet potatoes in a microwave until soft, turning every few minutes. This will take approx. 9 minutes. When cooked, finely mash with a fork and set aside to cool.
Heat the almond drink in a saucepan until warm or in a microwave for about 40 seconds.
Combine the flour, yeast, date sugar, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Mix well.
When the sweet potatoes have cooled, slowly combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Knead the dough on medium speed for about 8 minutes and then cover with clingfilm or a loose towel. Let the dough rise in a warm area for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
Cream the sugar, cinnamon, and butter together. Chop the pecan nuts.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to approx. 25 x 50 cm. Spread your cinnamon butter filling over the rolled out dough. Evenly sprinkle the pecan nuts over the cinnamon butter.
Carefully roll the dough starting from the long side to the bottom edge. Evenly cut into 12 slices.
Place the slices in a prepared baking dish or mould, cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes. Preheat your oven.
