Sweet Potato Bread Recipe @

A homemade  sweet potato bread  that is moist, soft and super easy to put together without yeast. .

I have baked all sort of quick bread, this time using sweet potato.  This Sweet Potato Bread  is a lighter version since it uses oil and water to moisten the bread,

Since my family does not like overly sweet bread, I use just a quarter cup of sugar but add a cup if you like it sweeter.

Also replace 3.4 cup of plain flour with whole wheat flour.

Like most quick bread recipe, it is done using a whisk.  Firstly, combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Whisk together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.  Combine the two, stir until just moistened and spoon into prepared pan.

Baked this Sweet Potato Bread exactly 50 minutes but it varies according to individual oven so adjust accordingly.

Here in India people often make savoury dishes with sweet potato. A bread with sweet potato is new to me.

Doesn't that just sound so delicious. I'm a huge fan of sweet potato but sadly the hubby doesn't like it so I don't buy it often. Maybe I can tempt him to change his mind with your recipe ;-)
