Yummy Sweet Potato Bread!


We decided to make Sweet Potato Bread to go along with our Native American Indian studies and the Indian Lore Merit Badge.  The boys enjoyed making it and loved eating it the following day while they did the written portion of the Indian Lore Merit Badge.



Sweet Potato Bread

3 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
3-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup water
2 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (I used 1- 40oz can)
1& 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1.Combine sugar and oil; beat well. Add eggs and beat. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with water. Stir in sweet potatoes and chopped nuts.

2.Pour batter into 2 greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 70 minutes.

**This recipe makes 2 loaves of bread, you can easily cut it in half to make 1 loaf.
