Sweet Potato Bread

    Used 3/4 C whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup all purpose -- it was great! A mildly sweet quick bread that doesn't taste like dessert.

    This was really good. I used purple sweet potatoes that had been peeled, steamed, and sliced/mashed...they worked well. I cut out some of the sugar and next time will cut it all out. Also, I didn't have any eggs so I found a substitute online for 2 tsp yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water. It worked great. And, I substituted coconut oil for vegetable oil. Next time I'll also add more raisins, as suggested by others.

    I've made this three times now, without the icing. I've always had to bake it at least ten minutes longer than the recipe calls for, and now I go ahead and double the recipe, as we really like this bread. I increased the amount of raisins by about half a cup this last time, and this was a good adjustment for us. The first time, my husband made it using a sweet potato from the pantry he cooked and cubed. The last two times, I've used canned yams that I mash up after draining the liquid, and the recipe has been wonderful no matter which was used.

    A denser bread with a good taste. Not too sweet. A good alternative to sweeter breads. Usually I skip the frosting, but felt that was a needed addition to this bread. Will include it in my collection. With all the spices the color bakes darker than the picture indicates.
