"YUM! These loaves are just FULL of the nuts and raisins, and are very moist. Such a really great combination of subtle flavors! I made a few substitutions with great results: I used pumpkin pie spice..." See more for nutmeg, 1/3 white sugar & 2/3 light brown, half oil & half applesauce, and used baked sweet potatoes: bake on parchment because they're messy! Prick potatoes, bake about 1hr 40min at 350F. The flesh pretty much pulls away from the skin - put the flesh in a bowl and give it a quick stir with a wisk and it's ready to go. I baked mine in mini-loaf pans (about 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 2") - this recipe makes 4 loaves at about 1 generous cup batter per loaf - for 50 minutes. Perfect! These will be holiday gifts for sure (and plenty for us, too!). For a zippy version, I might try dried cranberries in place of the raisins. "
"This was really good. A neat way to use sweet potatos! Instead of all white sugar, I used 1/2 brown sugar (ran out of white!). I also lined the pan with wax paper which is a good trick for these mo..." See moreist quick breads. Make sure to really mix in the sweet potatoes. Will make again for sure -- my one year loved it too!"
