20 Ways To Eat: Sweet Potato # 17

This bread from allrecipes.com isn’t so much for sandwiches, but before you start grumbling, with raisins and pecans, it’s a well-rounded option for a breakfast bread.

Southern Sweet Potato Bread

Bake Time: 70 min   Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F ( 165 degrees C ). Grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg cinnamon, and sugar. Add the eggs, oil, and milk; mix until well blended. Finally, stir in the mashed sweet potatoes, pecans, and golden raisins. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow bread to cool in the pan at least 15 minutes before removing. For best flavor, store overnight before serving.
