Sweet Potato Bread

6 Nov

Mmmm, more fall recipes. Love it all. I concocted a sweet potato bread recipe knowing nearly nothing about how to do so, and it was delightful. Perfect for a lazy Sat morning brunch (also, my friend Danielle’s birthday).

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • dashes cinnamon, clove, cardamom, nutmeg
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 of a stick of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c to 3/4 c vanilla yogurt (depending on consistency)
  • dash vanilla
  • 1 roasted sweet potato, peeled (after roasting) and mashed
  • Preheat at 350. Pam a loaf pan.
  • Sift together flour, spices, baking soda, salt in medium bowl
  • With hand mixer, cream butter, add brown sugar and eggs, then add yogurt and vanilla. Finally blend in sweet potato
  • Mix in dry ingredients (adding more yogurt if too dry)
  • Add pecans or top with brown sugar. Bake until golden brown on outside
