The other day I was grocery shopping at Trader Joe's and found something I had never seen before, canned sweet potato puree. I love pumpkin bread and thought it would be a yummy twist on it! So I bought it with a cart full of other items! Yesterday was a lazy day for me, so I decided to make Sweet Potato Bread. I found a recipe on All Recipes.com and here is my version of the Southern Sweet Potato Bread with Pecans.
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg with one egg white
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons non fat milk
1 can of sweet potato puree
1/2 chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 325, and grease a 8x4 loaf pan
In medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar.
Add eggs and milk and mix until blended. Finally, stir the sweet potato puree and walnuts and pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for about 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow bread to cool before serving and then ENJOY!!
***I think the bread came out a little crumbly so, next time I would add more oil to bind the ingredients.
