“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.”

Original recipe yields 1 5x9-inch loaf

Directions

  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.

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 actually turn into a glaze as written so I added another tsp of butter; still no glaze action. then I added a small amount of water the pow! we have glaze. I stirred vigorously for about a minute until it started to caramelize, then poured it over the bread and added the pecan to the top. thought it would make it more visually attractive and it did.

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.

OK so I made this but made muffins rather than a loaf. I made a few changes, I only used 1 cup of white sugar (we don't like things too sweet in our house)and it was plenty sweet enough but think I'll use half a cup of white and half a cup of brown sugar next time. I also didn't add any pecans or make the topping. I reduced the cooking time slightly, the muffins took about 20 mins at 375. I made 24 muffins but they were pretty small so next time I think I'll probably do 16 - 18 larger muffins. Everyone in my family loved them (especially the kids - even the picky one). I only gave it 4 stars as I found cooking the potato a little time consuming - I will peel and boil next time as this only takes about 20mins as opposed to 1 hour in the oven and then having to wait for it to cool enough to peel. I WILL be making this again. My kids loved this!!!!
