Reviews for Sweet Potato Bread & Pineapple Butter
"Delicious and very moist. My family loved it. Instead of the pineapple butter, I mixed 8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese (softened) and the can of pineapple drained. If mixture is too thick, just add a few drops of that pineapple juice to make it spreadable. Yummy!!!!!!!"
"Very, very good! Hubby is my critic on all new recipes. Says this is a keeper. Instead of 1/3 cup of water I used orange juice. Baking time was 1 hour 10 minutes in my oven. Very moist."
"definitely a five star recipe. my family loved this. my dad actually made the comment that he'll "never eat banana bread again!" It was delicious! I think the pineapple butter would be great with other things, too."
"Excellent bread! As another reviewer suggested I reduced the sugar to one cup. I substituted 1/4 teaspoon cloves and 1/4 teaspoon allspice for the nutmeg and added about a cup of walnuts. I didn't make the pineapple butter ... the bread is yummy, moist and sweet all on its own. I bake a lot of quick breads and this one will definitely be placed in the tried and true file!"
"Sounds real good. But I'm not a fan of the butter. What would the nutritionals be without it?You can't post a question without rating the recipe? I feel bad rating it since I haven't tried it, but that looks like the only way I can get my question posted"
"Couldn't stop picking off the delicious crusty pieces on top! I would recommend mixing a tablespoon of pineapple butter first to see if you'll like it. I found it to be overpowering, and the bread was too good to cover up the flavor."
"This has become a year round favorite! Wonderful flavor and the pineapple butter makes it a special occasion!"
"This bread was very moist! I did make a couple of changes. I only used 1 cup of sugar and added some extra sweet potato that I had left over (1/2 cup more). I took this bread to a gathering and couldn't even sit down before I was asked about the recipe. It was gone pretty fast for someone coming late to the gathering. Have already made this 3 other times. It's a winner."
"Very good bread, though I'm dubious about the pineapple butter and didn't make it--sounds too sweet to me"
"A keeper. Everybody loves when I make this"
"Made this for a friend. She said Sweet Potato Bread = Deliciousness!"
"so quick and easy to make...taste great"
"very easy and yummy!! Cooked the sweet potato in the microwave. the bread turned out great. baked it in a special "fall" loaf pan from William Sonoma.It is very important to drain the pineapple completely! The butter will be hard to mix and will separate if not drained well."
"Loved it.. wouldn't change a thing!!!"
"This sounds lovely, but was wondering if you could make it in smaller loaf pans to give as gifts."
"Sounds so good! I love sweet potatoes. Can you use less sugar?"
"moist and tasty"
"Tastes awesome and has my whole house smelling amazing. Simple to make as well."
"This is wonderful with or without the pineapple butter. I will definitely make it again."
"I make this bread ALL of the time. It is DELICIOUS and easy to prepare. I'm not a good baker but even I can't mess it up. Everybody raves over it when I make it. It doesn't even need the butter!"
"Fogot to mention that I always substitute the oil for applesauce and use about 1/2 the sugar. The consistency and flavor are still wonderful and you save calories."
"I make this bread often - everyone loves it. Sometimes I add1/4 tsp of Allspice and substitute orange juice for the water. I've also added in cranberries. This is a great recipe!"
"This was homey and yummy!"
"This is such a wonderful moist bread! I love the pineapple butter! I will be making this again and again!"
"This was delicious! Super tasty and comforting. The pineapple butter really made the flavors come together. Mine baked ~10 minutes longer than expected. Yum!"
"The pineapple butter compliments the bread. It was a big hit during a family gathering."
"This bread is really delicious, but I think it's too much batter for just one loaf. Mine expanded quite a bit out of the top of the pan and the center took much longer than the stated cooking time to get done. Next time, I'll split it into two loaves. We weren't crazy about the pineapple butter, either - The taste wasn't great, and the consistency wasn't attractive. Maybe I did something wrong? My family preferred a pineapple cream cheese mixture I made for it. Anyway, the bread itself is wonderful and I'll definitely make it again with those modifications."
