My across-the-street neighbor, Carolee, made this delicious quick bread. She followed the recipe exactly and the result was a moist and delicious quick bread with the subtle taste of sweet potato. The raisins added just the right amount of extra sweetness and the walnuts added a nice crunch. If I'd do anything different when I make this recipe, I'd toast the walnuts. Other than that..... delicious!!

I plan to use some leftover baked sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving to see how that works out.

I made this Sweet Potato Bread and it's over the top good, so moist , going to make more to give to family and friends when I make up goodie trays for the holidays. The recipe made seven 5-3/4 x 3 x 2 loafs and they raised up way above the pans, I used Bakers Joy non stick spray instead of greasing the pans. Awesome ! Awesome ! Bread......I also wrapped all but one loaf in press and seal and put in zip lock baggy and froze, I had to sample the 7 th loaf.

I made this today and followed the recipe to the letter except I substituted pecans for walnuts. It was exceptional.

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 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!
