I love sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I just have to have sweet potatoes along with my turkey on Thanksgiving but for some reason the rest of my family isn’t too wild about eating it so I have lots of leftovers. Here is my recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole. It is a wonderful recipe. I had lots of leftovers this year and I couldn’t eat it all by myself. I decided to make it into something different. I decided to make Sweet Potato Bread. This bread will be perfect for breakfast on a rushed morning. This is also a freezable bread.
Sweet Potato Bread
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup water
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (or use leftover Sweet Potato Casserole)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I didn’t add any because I added pecans to the casserole)
Combine sugar and oil; beat well. Add eggs and beat. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with water. Stir in sweet potatoes and chopped nuts. Pour batter into greased 9×5 inch loaf pan (or 2 small loaf pans). Bake at 350 degrees F for about one hour.
