"One of my favorite recipes made by my grandmother and handed down to me. My Granny made this bread as a sweet treat, but it was great for breakfast."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Wrap sweet potato in aluminum foil.
  2. Bake sweet potato in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk white sugar and canola oil together in a bowl. Add eggs; mix well. Sift flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg into sugar mixture. Slowly whisk water into flour-sugar mixture until incorporated.
  4. Peel sweet potato; mash into the batter. Fold in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  8. Heat brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Pour glaze over bread.

I made muffins instead of bread and it was amazing they lasted two days. I also added just a dash of ginger, put walnuts and brown sugar(not melted) on top instead of the inside.

okay. haven't had a chance to actually taste it yet but i just finished glazing the bread. a few little annoyances i had with the recipe were: i could not get the butter and brown sugar to actua...

Sweet sweetbread is really good!!!
