Reviews for Cranberry Sweet Potato Bread
"So good!!! Needs more cranberries though. Hard to believe it's healthy!"
"I;ve made a version of this recipe every year and my kids love it. Highy recommend but I aso changed the flour to whole wheat and the texture was even nicer."
"First time I made this, I followed the recipe and it was amazing. Second time I made this, I substituted the canned sweet potato for canned pumpkin. YUMO!!"
"Very nice taste and texture! The only change I made was to use all-purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour...as much as I love whole wheat yeast breads, I don't care for it in sweet breads."
"Sounds delicious! Any tips on making it gluten-free?"
"I'M ALLERGIC TO WHEAT AND WAS WONDERING IF I CAN JUST USE REG. FLOUR INSTEAD? THANKS"
