SWEET POTATO BREAD

August 21, 2014

If there’s one thing I cannot get enough of lately it has been snack breads. AKA quick breads. AKA breads that don’t require yeast. Yes, I love the typical banana and zucchini ones. But when you’re making about two loaves a week, you need some fresh things in the rotation as well.

I like this bread sweet potato version because it’s not overly sweet and also perfectly Autumnal. Because once September 1st hits, I will be in full on Fall mode, regardless of the weather. All pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, butternut squash, and sweet potato everything, please.

  • On the size of the sweet potatoes, I am assuming that the recipe would need the same amount as, say, a banana bread, in cups. In other words, whatever amount your banana bread calls for. Hope this helps.

    I’d love to try this recipe, but not sure exactly how much mashed sweet potato to use. Given sweet potatoes vary is size and weight. can you provide an exact measure in grams and/or cups. Thanks,

    Hi there. This looks wonderful and I love the Fall too!! Can you sub in coconut sugar or maple syrup for the white sugar and brown sugar in your recipe? What do you suggest? Also, can you sub in almond flour, oat flour or something else for the white flour? Just trying to get away from the “white” things in recipes if I can help it. Thanks!!
