Reviews for Sweet Potato Cinnamon Bread

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!
This recipe is a perfect blend of seasonings - so very tasty! It does NOT, however, make 4 mini loaves. I filled 4 pans 3/4 full & had lots of left over batter. So greased up 2 more pans & divided the batter equally amongst the 6 & the batter still almost filled up the pans. And yes, I used the 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Another Taste of Home recipe on this site: "Sweet Potato Mini Loaves" is almost identical to this one & states it makes 6 mini loaves.
This is a very good quick bread. Moist & a good balance of sweet & spice. I used the mini loaf pans as suggested, and there was enough batter left to make 1 9x5 loaf. I thought the yeild note at the battom of the recipe was misleading, but it is obvious there will be more than 4 mini loaves.
