Sweet Potato Bread!


When Fall arrives and it actually starts to cool down enough to enjoy baking again, I love to make breads!   This "Sweet Potato Bread" is one that turns out really tasty and it's good for several days if it lasts that long!  

This bread smells heavenly while baking!   I love it right out of the oven, sliced and serve with butter or a cream cheese spread.  This is also really good the next day, sliced and toasted with butter and honey on it or cream cheese!   

This recipe makes two nice loaves of bread so you can gift one or freeze one!  It's a nice treat to share with family or neighbors!

Here is what you will need for this:

1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups sugar
3  1/2 cups all purpose flour
1  1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (can use canned or cooked fresh)
1 cup nuts, chopped  ( walnuts or pecans)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the oil, eggs, water and sugar,  Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.   Add the mashed sweet potatoes and the wet mixture (eggs, oil, water, sugar).  Blend just until the dry ingredients are wet.  Stir in the chopped nuts.

Spray  2   9" x 5" loaf pans well with nonstick baking spray. I like Baker's Joy.  Divide the mixture evenly between the two pans.   Bake for 1 hour.   A pick inserted into the middle should come out clean. 

Turn it out after it cools slightly! 

Slice and serve!!! 

It's delicious!!!
