Sweet Potato Bread

I love dessert breads. They are a little less sugary tasting than cookies but just as satisfying to me. If you’ve tried my Honey Banana Bread, you may recognize this recipe – it is an adaptation.

For a different texture, try frying a slice of this in butter – it gets crispy and warm and delicious. It makes a great breakfast snack

  • 6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups grated raw sweet potato (one medium-large potato will do)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease loaf pan well, especially the bottom. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla, and sweet potato. Mix until incorporated.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  6. While stirring sweet potato mixture, slowly add flour mixture until all is incorporated.
  7. Pour batter into loan pan.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.
  9. Remove immediately from pan and let cool completely before cutting.
