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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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!

Ingredients

3 c
self-rising flour
2 tsp
nutmeg
2 tsp
cinnamon
2 c
sugar
4
eggs
1 c
vegetable oil
4 Tbsp
whole milk
2 c
mashed sweet potatoes

THIS RECIPE IS EASILY DOUBLED & EVEN LEFTOVER MIXTURE CAN BE ADDED TO IN ORDER TO MAKE MORE.

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.
5Bake 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.
6Turn out onto cooling racks.
7Wrap with Saran or other cling wrap to keep fresh.
