Sweet Potato Bread
This Southern Sweet Potato Bread is made with freshly cooked sweet potatoes, pecans, & a little pumpkin pie spice. It’s reminiscent of a pumpkin bread but so much tastier!
When sweet potatoes go on sale, one should make some sweet potato bread! 😉
My local grocery store had sweet potatoes for just $0.27 a pound, so I decided to buy a large amount of them with such a great price. They keep for a pretty long time versus most other forms of produce, so it’s a great thing to stock up on when you can. Since they were so cheap, it was a perfect excuse to whip up a batch of my Southern Sweet Potato Bread.
Sweet Potato Bread tastes very similar to pumpkin bread, but a little tastier if you ask me. I don’t know what it is exactly about it that makes me like it more, but I do. However, if you have never had sweet potato bread before – pumpkin bread is the closest thing that I can compare it to. I guess you just need to scroll down for the recipe and make it so you know what it tastes like for yourself, huh? 😉
I love this bread warm with a little butter spread on top… talk about tasty!
