Sweet Potato Spice Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling

Makes

2 mini loaves (6 pieces each)

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
