Reviews for Sweet Potato Cinnamon Bread
"I made this today and followed the recipe to the letter except I substituted pecans for walnuts. It was exceptional."
"Mmmmmm! Yummy moist quick bread! Only change i made was to use dried cranberries instead of raisins. This recipe is a keeper!"
"The recipe was so awesome and so delicious. The 1st time I made it I followed the recipe. The 2nd time I made it I didn't put in raisins and instead of milk I used egg nog. I will definitely be making the bread more often."
"I made this bread this a.m. and changed it a little. instead of raisins i used dried cherries and a few craisins.& used only cinnamon & a little pumpkin pie spice.....made 6 small loaves.it's very good and also gave a loaf to my neighbor...."
"I cannot make a review yet, but I have a question. Would the cinnamon chips possibly be a good addition? My review will bring the stats down but I have not tried the recipe yet."
"Made recipe exactly as written. Delicious!!! Took longer to bake - such big loaves. Next time I will make 3 medium loaves."
"Well we really like this recipe. I must confess that I did make a few changes, partly because of what I had on hand. I baked the sweet potatoes, then mashed them, and I used craisins, rather than raisins, and probably about 1 1/2 cup walnuts. I baked 2 small loaves, and 1 in what is called a coffee cake pan. I am sharing the results with my neighbors. Thank you for the recipe!"
"Can u use pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes?"
"This was such a big hit with my friends. It was simple to make, and the flavour was really good. I accidentally added more sweet potato than was called for, but it still turned out just perfect. It made 7 loaves for me."
"I got 7 mini-loaves. I made several batches of this sweet potato bread for "little Thanksgiving gifts". Everyone loved them. This recipe is a keeper, thank you!"
