Cranberry Sweet Potato Quick Bread

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Graciebonica

I found this recipe several years ago in Light Cooking, but hadn't tried it until recently. This makes a substantial loaf with a delicate flavor. If you want a stronger spice flavor, then just increase the 1/4 tsp. measurements of the cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking.

Absolutely had to tag this recipe primarily because it includes two of my favorite ingredients, sweet potatoes & cranberries! And, with one exception, I followed the ingredient list right on down ~ In order to increase the orange flavor a bit, I included almost a full tablespoon of orange zest! The result was a really great tasting bread that we shared with no one at all, at least not this time around! Thanks for sharing a great keeper of a recipe!
