    Heather'sKitchen's Note:

    The solution to those yummy leftover candied yams! I don't measure when I make candied yams so sometimes the leftovers have more liquid. If there is some liquid in the candied yams, I use that in place of some of the milk, making sure I get 1/2 cup of total liquid. If the liquid drained from the candied yams looks particularly buttery, I use it in place of some of the butter, making sure to get 1/2 cup total for the fat measurement. If there isn't much liquid I just use the measurements stated in the recipe. This makes a yummy bread!
