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!
