Sweet Potato Bread



Dish #2. No Thanksgiving would not be complete without something made of sweet potatoes. I was debating whether or not to serve them mashed or some other way. I didn't really finalize my menu until the very last minutes. Ah, procrastination. Something I'm still working on. But then I decided to go for the bread route.  Besides, rather than making the usual dinner rolls, for a special occasion like a holiday, it calls for something a little more different than the norm.

I like to have this warm with a little bit of cranberry sauce spread on top.Drizzle on some cranberry sauce or gravy or butter or jam or, or...you name it, you can pair it. Well, almost anything.

Makes 1 loaf




Sweet Potato Bread

1 cup unsalted butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons soda
4 cups flour
3 small sweet potatoes (peeled)

Preheat your oven to 350˚F

Cut the sweet potatoes into quarters. Toss them in a tiny drizzle extra virgin olive oil and season with some salt and pepper. Place them in the baking sheet and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.  When finished mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl and set aside

In a bowl, sift together the flour salt, baking soda, cinnamon.

In another bow, cream together the butter and sugar. Then beat in each egg. Slowly pour in the flour mixture constantly stirring. Then add the sweet potatoes. Blend well.

Pour the batter into a greased loaf dish. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Let the loaf cool slightly before removing from the pan.

I'm not a huge fan of sweet pototoes by themselves, but for some reason I love sweet potato fries and I bet I would like them hidden in this bread too.

I've never made it before, so its going on my to-do list!

Thanks for posting the recipe!

I bet this is FANTASTIC with cranberry sauce - that's my kind of thinking. :) (though I might be tempted to throw some dried crans in the batter too...)

Fantastic! I lovelovelove sweet potato but I'm in the definite minority in my immediate family for most dishes. But who could turn down a great loaf of bread? What do you think about adding nuts and/or fruits to it?

Sweet potato is a highly nutritious and an alternative for food for their valuable contents of carbohydrate, protein and carotene, which are necessary for normal development and even for the sexual development too, believe it or not. Sweet potato is really helpful for welfare and our body.
