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

  • 1Preheat oven to 350°.
  • 2Whisk together dry ingredients, whisk eggs in a separate bowl.
  • 3In 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.
  • 4Scoop 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.

    Use the toothpick test to judge, but don't overcook. You want this bread to be moist.
