A yummy twist to my traditional sweet potato bread recipe. I made it this way for the first time and it is delicious! I hope you enjoy it, too! :)

Move over banana bread, this sweet potato bread may be our new fall favorite. It has incredible sweet potato flavor, with just the right amount of spices and a beautiful layer of cream cheese baked in the center. Moist, sweet and aromatic, it's nice enough to give as a hostess gift to friends.

Note: Be watchful of the time depending on the size pan you use. The bread should spring back when you lightly touch it or when a toothpick comes out clean. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
