Sweet Potato Bread

Adapted from Cooking Light via Food and Thrift


1 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon cloves

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup canola oil

2 eggs

3/4 cup peeled, then finely grated sweet potato


Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a 5 x 9 inch loaf pan with Baker's Joy (or butter then flour). I also line bottom of pan with a rectangle of parchment. Set aside.


Combine all dry ingredients and whisk to break up any lumps. Set aside.


Mix sour cream, sugar, honey and oil. Add eggs and mix till combined. Mix in sweet potato. Add dry ingredients and mix with a spoon till just moistened. Pour into loaf pan.


Bake for 25 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 325º and bake for 20 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.


Cool for 5-10 minutes, then remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing (if you can wait!).
