The photo I chose to use for this recipe was one I found online that most resembles what the bread actually looks like. (The bread in this picture however is NOT Sweet Potato Bread) Those I found online didn't look NEARLY as scrumptious as this one does - and this is TRULY what it will look like! It's SOOOO YUMMY and the scent of your house while it bakes is UNBELIEVABLE!
Sweet Potato Bread
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 cups of cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (I almost ALWAYS cheat and used the canned ones)
- 1 cup of chopped nuts (if desired - I normally use 2 cups)
Combine sugar, vanilla, oil, potatoes and eggs, mix well. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour into greased 1 pound coffee cans or 4 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or when a toothpick comes out clean. The mixture nearly doubles in size, be careful not to get baking pans too full. : ) I usually only fill a little over halfway.
(I always grease the inside of the baking pan and "dust" with flour BEFORE adding the mix - it is very likely to stick to the pan if you don't)
