DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub sweet potatoes, and cook in boiling water for 20 minutes, or until soft.
  • Drain, reserving 1/4 cup liquid; set aside.
  • Peel, and mash enough sweet potatoes to measure 2 cups; set aside to cool completely.
  • Sift together next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
  • In another large bowl, combine by hand the mashed sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup liquid, sugar, eggs, and oil.
  • (Batter will be lumpy.) Add flour mixture to sweet potato mixture, and stir just until moistened.
  • (Batter will be stiff.) Fold in blueberries.
  • Spoon mixture into 2 greased 11x7x4 loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350F for 50-60 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean.
