How to Make Savory Sweet Potato Bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom of an 8-inch round baking pan.
  2. Combine both flours, onion, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; mix well and set aside.
  3. Combine sweet potatoes, sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl; mix well.
  4. Add flour mixture to sweet potato mixture; stir until combined. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  5. Bake bread until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Plan pan on wire rack to cool slightly. Cut into wedges and serve warm!
