I;ve made a version of this recipe every year and my kids love it. Highy recommend but I aso changed the flour to whole wheat and the texture was even nicer.

First time I made this, I followed the recipe and it was amazing. Second time I made this, I substituted the canned sweet potato for canned pumpkin. YUMO!!

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.
