Cranberry Sweet Potato Bread Recipe

I love to bake and this healthy bread is moist and so flavorful. I often make two loaves at a time and give one as a gift. —Janice Christofferson, Eagle River, Wisconsin

"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."
