Sweet Potato Bread

Sweet Potato Bread is one of my family favorites.  They aren’t too keen on eating sweet potatoes, so this is my perfect way of getting them to eat them without fuss.

Making this sweet potato bread recipe is pretty easy, most of the ingredients you’ll need you likely already have on hand in your pantry.

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. In a medium bowl combine sugar and oil; beat well.
  2. Add eggs and beat for another 1-2 minutes
  3. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix dry ingredients together.
  4. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture then add water.
  5. Stir in sweet potatoes and (optional) chopped pecans.
