"A hearty bread with the warm taste of sweet potatoes and the tangy taste of orange juice. This is a great way to use your leftover baked sweet potatoes but canned are fine too." — Umm Asiyah

3 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
A good bread, moist and flavorful.
The bread was good, but not as good as my pumkin bread. I needed 5 sweet potatoes to get the 2 cups of mashed sweet potato. My potatoes were what I would have considered average. Be prepared to bake more than the 3 the recipe calls for.
I cut back on the sugar by a cup and substituted applesauce for the oil. I made into muffins, hoping to sneak some nutrition in my toddler. It worked! She loves them and I feel better knowing she's getting something somewhat nutritious.
I only used 2 cups of sugar - next time - and there will be a next time - will use even less - and it still came out delicious and moist! Also, only took an hour to bake.
I followed other reviews and limited the sugar to one and a half cups plus a little extra to sprinkle on the top before baking. I've found that dusting the top of quick breads with a little bit of sugar is an excellent substitute for copious amounts of sugar in the batter plus it give the bread a great, crusty top.
Like another reviewer, I substituted applesauce for all of the oil and it turned out great. I would recommend both greasing and flouring the pans, though.
Also, I would add about one teaspoon extra cinnamon.
My loaves cooked in one hour.
From my kids: "We really liked it. We have a friend who is allergic to dairy products, and this recipe is okay for her! Last time mom made banana bread, but this is even better! It was delicate, but sweet and taste like pumpkins, too! .... Mmmmmmmm! this was SO good! My mom made this and it was practically pumkin. She didn't use allspice because she did not have any. It was awfully good anyway!" Thanks!
Used two cups sugar as previousy suggested. It's spicy and my little kids didn't care for it much but my husband thought I should quit my job and go into business making this. It is very moist and it gets better and better as the days pass if there's still any left.
