Sweet Potato Spice Bread

 Sweet Potato Spice Bread
Moist and tender, this delightful quick bread has a bold molasses-spice flavor. It's a good thing this recipe makes two mini loaves because they'll go fast! You can eat one loaf now and freeze the other for later. — Ronnie Littles, Virginia Beach, Virginia
