Sweet Potato Cinnamon Bread Recipe

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Bread Recipe

My family loves quick breads. This one is moist and spicy. If you don't have mini loaf pans it works just as well in regular size pans. —Nancy Foust, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania

"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 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."

"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!"
