Sweet Potato Pecan Bread

M. Bryan


I prefer to use 1/4 or less teaspoon of nutmeg just for my personal taste since this spice can be a bit strong.

Sweet potatoes can be cooked a day or so ahead and stored in refrigerator. I use small potatoes and cook them in a pressure cooker (skins on). I find it faster than baking or peeling & boiling. Plus retains flavor better than if boiled.

This is a fall favorite at our house and will make your house smell so good while baking.
