    This is outstanding. It is really so much better with fresh cooked sweet potatoes.

      This is an amazing quick bread and a nice change of pace from banana and pumpkin breads. I had a bunch of leftover sweet potatoes, so I made four loaves of this today. I cut the sugar by 25% and it was still plenty sweet. I'll probably cut the sugar in half next time. I also substituted brown sugar for half the sugar, used a combo of pecans and walnuts, and omitted the raisins. I found that I had to add quite a bit more milk to get a bread batter consistency - maybe 3-4 more tablespoons per loaf - but other than that, everything went as expected. We really, really liked this and I will definitely make it again. Yum!

      Delicious! We really enjoyed this tasty quick bread. It was a nice change from banana and pumpkin bread. I used a fresh sweet potato from my garden. To save time, I microwaved it whole until soft, then I peeled and mashed it. As a personal preference, I omitted the golden raisins. I baked this in a cast iron loaf pan, so I reduced the oven temperature down to 315F degrees and baked it for 1 hour 20 minutes. Thank you for sharing. **Made for Sweet December tag**

      My 4 year old and twin 19 month olds loved it! I'm always looking for ways to get extra veggies in them. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and will likely cut it again or omit it all together. I found the raisins, soaked first in hot water, provided lots of sweetness. I, too, used extra sweet potatoes as I had them all mashed up and I used 1/2 cup plain flour and 1 cup whole meal. I had to add a bit more milk to make it the right consistency. And I ran out of oil, so I used some butter. Yum.
