Granny’s Sweet Potato Bread
This sweet, spiced bread gains additional moisture and color from baked sweet potatoes. For a nutty flavor, pecans are added to the batter and sprinkled on top.

Set oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees C).

Wrap the sweet potato in foil.

For about an hour, bake sweet potatoes in a preheated oven until they can be easily pierced with a fork.

Set apart for cooling.

Canola oil and white sugar are combined in a bowl.

Add eggs and thoroughly combine.

Sift the cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour into the sugar mixture.

Add water a little at a time, whisking until combined.

Mash the peeled sweet potato into the batter.

Add in half a cup of chopped pecans.

Oven temperature is decreased to 320 degrees F.

(160 degrees C).

A 9×5-inch loaf pan should be sprayed with cooking oil.

Fill the prepared loaf pan with the batter.

Bake in the preheated oven for about an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread emerges clean.
