My Mom (Deb) started a hand-written recipe book of all us kids' faves & holiday traditions about a year before she passed in 2001. These recipes have become a way for us to still have mom at all of our holiday meals for 14 years now. I've never shared until now any of her specialties. However, I find as each year passes & as her grandchildren get older & begin to learn to cook that time is so precious, as my mom passed in less than 5 minutes UNEXPECTEDLY & very young. I post these to keep her memory alive & to honor a great mom & wonderful cook.

Thanks to the nutmeg and cinnamon, baking this bread really evokes the aromas of the holidays. Your kitchen will smell fantastic. Sweet potatoes are a favorite of mine and they make this bread very moist and light. It's de-lish! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Deb's Famous Sweet Potato Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients, whisk eggs in a separate bowl.
  3. In a large mixing bowl or using large bowl with stand-up mixer, mix together all ingredients thoroughly 5 minutes, scraping sides regularly with rubber spatula to ensure proper mix.
  4. Scoop mixture into small to medium loaf pans, filling each pan 2/3 full.
    I use a decorative pan of my Mom's that has 4 small loaf pans in one pan.
  5. Bake at 350° 45-60 minutes depending on your pan size & oven.

    Use the toothpick test to judge, but don't overcook. You want this bread to be moist.
  6. Turn out onto cooling racks.
  7. Wrap with Saran or other cling wrap to keep fresh.
