A few weekends ago the age old question of – “What should I make?” struck me. After perusing through my cabinets and with holiday season upon us … I decided to make a Sweet Potato Bread. Of course, I could have gone with the ever popular Pumpkin Bread. Since, I don’t like Pumpkin anything, I nixed that idea.
It seems that Pumpkin and Butternut Squash are the most popular items for autumn. I don’t care for either. Picky eater table of one!
I love Sweet Potatoes — okay I love Sweet Potato Pie and Candied Sweet Potatoes. I chose to see this bread making experiment as a challenge – step out my comfortable box and try something different.
It’s great to stretch one’s boundaries from time to time. It’s even better when it’s a success.
This particular Sweet Potato Bread is more like a sweet/spicy bread with undertones of Sweet Potato. Moist like the Banana Bread and finished off with a crumb topping. Dare I say if you were doing homemade gifts this would be a great gift to give!
This year I am going to do homemade/ quasi homemade gifts for my family, except for my youngest nephew – I don’t have a way of making a homemade or even semi-homemade iPod.
I hope you will also enjoy this recipe as much as my office guinea pigs did!
