This was great! We all really loved it. I love that there is sweet potato in it. I'll definitely be making this often. Thank you!
This was my first time making a loaf with sweet potato and it was really nice. The consistancy is not the same as regular Zucchini bread, but the taste was really good - and a great way to sneak in a few more veggies. Thanks andypandy.
This was a very yummy impressive loaf!! i made i.5 pans actually because there seemed to be alot of batter. My kids really loved this bread and it was all gone in no time. its a great way to get veggies into kids. The only thing that did not make it 5 stars was that it didn't hold together as well as i would like when sliced. I am making it into muffins tonight though, so that should not be a problem. Thanks SO MUCH for this recipe. I will be using it often. :)
