Saturday morning I found myself washing dishes, mentally planning what I would be baking that morning. I did a mental check list of what needed to be used in my fridge and pantry. I had just gotten my basket and knew I had a few things that needed to be used up before we dug into our new basket of fruit and veggies. I had quite a few sweet potatoes to use. Usually I do mashed sweet potatoes, but a mama can only make that so many times. I needed something new to help me use up those orange potatoes in my pantry. Then it dawned on me....Why not make sweet potato bread. I thought I was coming up with something pretty original, until I googled it and realized many other mamas had already had my great idea. I checked out a few of their recipes and then came up with the recipe below. It is a super moist bread, which was a crowd favorite in my home. In fact it only lasted about 2 days here. We all gobbled it up as soon as we could. Yep it is that good. So make some quick bread for your family tonight. Serve it for breakfast, a snack, or a yummy dessert. We were finding any excuse to have it.... I seriously need to make some more....yum:)

Sweet Potato Bread
1 ½ cups sugar
1 stick butter
2 eggs
1 ¾ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
1/3 cup water
1 cup cooked sweet potato puree (I did mine in the pressurecooker)
½ cup white chocolate chips (optional)
1 tbl flax seed (optional)
1 tbl bran (optional)

Combine sugar and butter in a mixing bowl, beat until creamy. Add water, eggs and puree. Beat until smooth. Add dry ingredients and beat. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350' for about 1 hour.

This recipe is included in this weeks meal plan.
