Tips
  • Cooked and mashed fresh sweet potatoes taste the best, but canned will work just fine.
  • For all you pumpkin bread fans out there, sweet potato bread is the next best thing! It’s made in the same way — but with cooked sweet potato instead of canned pumpkin — and they’re so similar you may not even be able to tell the difference between the two. This version calls for golden raisins and pecans for additional flavor and texture.
