I first tasted this wonderful sweet potato bread about 30 years ago, when a nice lady that worked with my husband gave us a loaf for Christmas. It was absolutely heavenly, so moist and delicious! It originally called for baking the loaves in 1 pound coffee cans, but I've since had to switch to loaf pans because I can no longer find coffee in cans, only bags and plastic containers. This lovely lady has since passed on, but she was sweet enough to give me her wonderful recipe before she retired. I hope you all enjoy it!
